Pharmacy Museum

  ul. Piwna 31/33      (+48) 22 831 71 79     22 Jan 2024
This charming Old Town museum presents the quaint interior of an interwar pharmacy filled with glass vials and beakers, wooden furnishings, period advertisements and vintage pharmaceutical equipment. Inside you'll get a healthy dose of history about medicine, poison, and narcotics. Although niche, it really is a wonderful visit; in fact a recent refurbishment has resulted in the Pharmacy Museum being nominated for European Museum of the Year 2022.

A branch of the Museum of Warsaw, the museum 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 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.

Average visiting time: 45mins.
