Pharmacy Museum, Lviv

(3.7/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Take a tour of Pharmacy Museum, the oldest pharmacy in town, with a collection of 2,000 medical items dating as far back as 4,000 years. Opened in 1966, this 16-room exposition takes up residence in a building that was a drugstore in 1735. Observe the facade featuring bas-reliefs of the Greek god of medicine and his daughter, the goddess of health. View a ceiling painted by Viennese masters in the 19th century. The rich collection inside features antique pharmaceutical appliances, manuscripts, and dishes. You'll also see one-of-a-kind scales from the 18th century, as well as an ancient symbol of medicine--a bowl with a snake. Visit the site's alchemy workshop in a mysterious underground chamber.

  • Just a collection of empty bottles and vials, as well as the old cash registers. In general everything. From interesting places, perhaps the cashier with purple hair. When the ticket with a 15 UAH, regret nothing. Well OK Che.
