AFAIK, the oldest pharmacy in Lviv, still operating together with museum. There you will see everything from vintage medical stuff up to alchemist's room. I would recommend to go... read more

After my previous visit I recently returned to the museum with a bit more time to explore the rooms. Whilst the objects are of interest the museum lacks English labels and direction.

AFAIK, the oldest pharmacy in Lviv, still operating together with museum. There you will see everything from vintage medical stuff up to alchemist's room. I would recommend to go there with guide (many agencies at central square offer very cheap tours there) in order to get maximum and not to miss any door, because the museum is MUCH bigger than...

It was really interesting, but only because of our guide. Without guide you won't understand anything - all the informative cards are in Ukrainian language, that's really sad, because in this museum you can find lots of interesting objects.

The first room is just an ordinary pharmacy with an old interior design, but for an additional prize you can go further inside the building and see lots of things related to pharmacy and medicine. The museum is small and there is no information on the walls, and of course there is nothing in English there. Thus, it is kind... More

In the Middle Ages there were available “Elixir aeternae Iuvenis” (eternal youth) Now, you will be shown only the cellars, where it was kept. Table of Elements with cooking it is in alchemist laboratory. Also was presented machine for the manufacture of tablets. And other exhibits on the history of medicine. But there is no elixir for sale!

The museum is very beautiful (the antiquities alone are probably worth a fortune) and, though not very large, probably very educational -- provided you can read Ukranian, Polish or Russian, as most exhibits include a mix of these languages. As a foreigner who cannot speak any of the above, I was content with just walking around and looking at the... More

Exhibits are really interesting but I got really upset when realized that we have reached the end of museum. It's quite small and I can't tell that I loved this. Such museums should be large, including big amount of exhibits
