This is a small but interesting museum. There are only 2 rooms but each has many of the beautiful china pots which were used for drugs etc. There was nothing in English. It is one of a group of 3 museums one of which is closed for renovations. The building itself is shabby and in need of of a lot... More

Interesting little exhibition. The two rooms with explanations only in French don't do justice to the importance of the farmacy in the 17th century

The pharmacie is only two rooms and only takes 10 minutes to look round, but was quite interesting. Combine this with the old chapel literally just across the corridor and the whole visit takes 15 minutes and is well worth it. You then get 'free' entry with the same ticket to the old town museum, which isn't great but if... More

Very poor, the antique shop around the corner had more to see. No guide in English and no offer of guided tour. chapel in a very poor state and equally lacked anything worth looking at. Would recommend instead the chateau d'avignon nr Arles, same price but so much more to see inc furnishings and pictures from 1700's.

We found this little museum a very interesting place. The French guide managed to inform us of everything in English. Well worth a visit.

There are three museums in the parcours muséographique "Histoire et Patrimoine" of Montpellier, but we only had time for one so we chose the Pharmacie de la Misericorde as it shows a rare glimpse into the history of Montpellier's social health initiatives. You pay 3 euros at any of the three museums to receive a ticket which gives you entry... More
