Pharmacy Museum, Lviv

3.7
#4 of 22 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. With our international travel planner, Lviv attractions like Pharmacy Museum can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
