Krakow

Pharmacy Museum

  ul. Floriańska 25 ,   Old Town          (+48) 12 421 92 79     21 Jun 2021

Located inside a wonderful 15th-century building, Kraków's brilliant Pharmacy Museum is laid out over five floors (currently only four are open) and includes all manner of exhibits from full-scale reproductions of ancient apothecary shops to some beastly snakes in jars. While the top floor holds a really good display of traditional herbal medicines, note that the basements - set-up to look like an alchemy workshop - are currently closed. Also of note is an exhibit dedicated to the extraordinary and brave Pole, Tadeusz Pankiewicz, who operated a pharmacy in the Kraków Ghetto during WWII. A property of Jagiellonian University, overall this surprising museum is a lot more interesting than it sounds.
