Set in a historic 15th-century townhouse, Pharmacy Museum, one of the largest museums of its kind in Europe, features a collection of old laboratory equipment, rare pharmaceutical instruments, medical books, and documents. The building is worth visiting for its architectural features alone, including Gothic vaulted cellars, a Baroque ceiling covered with ornamental wallpaper, and Renaissance portals. See the full-scale reproductions of antique apothecary shops and an excellent display of traditional herbal medicines on the top floor. Audio and visual information provides testimonials about people's suffering during World War II. Learn about the Pharmacy Under the Eagle, which was kept by the “righteous gentile” Tadeusz Pankiewicz in the Jewish ghetto during the German occupation.
