Antonina Leśniewska Museum of Pharmacy

  31/33 Piwna Street      (+48) 22 831 71 79     28 Sep 2021
A quaint museum featuring vintage pharmaceutical equipment, storage containers, furnishings, and advertisements, plus a healthy dose of history about medicine, poison, and narcotics. This branch of the Museum of Warsaw is named after Antonina Leśniewska, a groundbreaking female pharmacist and Warsaw native who lived between 1866 and 1937. Leśniewska not only became the first female Master of Pharmacy in Russia (back in those days when Poland was partitioned between European powers), but also founded her own pharmacy in Saint Petersburg, employing and training other women, and campaigned for women's rights in general.
