This place is fantastic. It is both a museum and a working pharmacy. You can pick up your modern perscrptions as well as seeing what passed for medicine in the past. Had been operating continuously since 1422. It is free to visit.
Very interesting, especially with nearly 600 years in business. Lots of bits on display from centuries past plus current day medications.
Operates as ordinary pharmacy, which is perfect because it is in a very centric location
It's like a mini museum with an actual pharmacy in it, but also exhibition with old pharmacy equipment
Wonderful little gem with lot of history - free of charge to visit. Don't miss it.
