The Jagiellonian University’s Pharmacy Museum is housed inside a lovely 14th century building. The 22000-item collection is one of the largest and best of its kind in the world. It comprises of books, instruments, glassware, jars, and lab equipment. The collection of traditional medicinal herbs is fascinating. There is a full-scale replica of a traditional apothecary. Furthermore, the three floors of the pharmacy have a varied decor, covering Baroque, Empire, and Biedermeier styles. This includes interesting stained glass windows. And though Tadeusz Pankiewicz gets his own museum located in the Old Krakow Ghetto, there is a small exhibit about him here too.

Pharmacy Museum, Krakow Reviews - Write a Review
Pretty interesting, but it can get a bit annoying if youre Not familiar with the topic
Very interesting trip to the past world of pharmacy. I truelly reccomended to see an attic. Amazing !
This is a very rich content museum and is a must see, especially if you are interested in the subject. History and emerging of pharmacy in Krakow and in general as well, is exhibited here. The museum consists of five floors, that it may take you quite a while to see everything thoroughly. Don't miss it.
Fascinating collection of old medicines, equipment, and biographies. One woman supplied Auschwitz prisoners with meds. Kids will love the skeleton sitting in the basement lab. Beware the early closing time.
Interesting museum for all
