Specialty Museum Museum
The thoughtfully presented collection at Pharmacy Museum Brixen was donated and collated by a family of pharmacists in the business (in the very museum building) for over 400 years. The museum presents the history of healing through exhibits of plants, animals, and minerals used as remedies around the world. You don't need medical or pharmaceutical knowledge to appreciate the educational displays--the artifacts are explained and described in language familiar to ordinary tourists. It's a quick trip through the development of medical cures that will make you look at over-the-counter pain medication with new appreciation.

  • Not very big, you visit me in half an hour, but very interesting, especially for those unfamiliar with the chemistry. Many explanations, anecdotes and trivia, from the pharmacy of centuries ago. We had Closed card, then walked free, but worth a visit even paying the fare that is exactly cheap.
