4.1
#2 of 21 in Museums in Lviv
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.

  • I personallt found it interesting to learn about the history of pharmacy in Lviv. Also the exhibition is quite intriguing as well. The place also actively serves as a pharmacy which makes it cooler :) Entrance is 20 Grivnas which is less than a dollar.
  • Unusual experience in this museum. I can call it outstanding
  • It can be interesting for tourists, but not for everyone. Honestly not so much interesting stuff for me. But it's ok to go there once. And it is very close to the rynok square.
  • The Pharmacy Museum in Lviv was founded in 1795 and since then it has not stopped its activity, selling medicines of its own production. It is a unique historical landmark. Nowadays drugs are no longer produced here, but they are easily and easily accessible to everyone. Here you will find rooms with pharmacy utensils: originally packed with bottles, scales, laboratory tools.
  • In my opinion the best museum in town. !
