If you haven’t noticed by now, Ukrainians love pharmaceuticals. There’s a drug store on practically every corner of every city! The foundation of a museum dedicated to the apothecary is very fitting. The Pharmacy Museum is located in a drugstore established in 1735 by a military pharmacist. The drugstore remains in operation and continues to mix its signature “Iron wine” used to treat anaemia. This distinctive angular house on the corner of Drukars’ka and Stavropihiyska hosts an exposition of more than 3,000 articles. The most curious of which are the pharmaceutical scales located in the opening hall. The second hall was originally used as a stockroom and currently displays pharmaceutical instruments from a variety of epochs. Within the third hall you’ll discover an ancient laboratory that was reproduced on the basis of pictures and engravings. An apartment house belonging to one of Lviv’s 16th century petty bourgeois has been reconstructed in the internal court yard.


Open 10:00 - 17:00.
