Great place!

It is very interesting place and you can see what the pharmacy used to be in the past - how they produced the medicines and how they kept them.

It is very low key, perhaps if you work in the medical field it may appeal you more! There is no charge to walk in a and have quick look around, they also sell some products at the cash area.

This small museum behind a working pharmacy, is worth a short visit. I found the most interesting aspect to be the tour into the basement and interior of the old building. The admission fee is so small, even a fifteen minute visit is worth it.

There's enough old pharmacy bottles and equipment and facilities to occupy an hour or so of your time at this museum. And while you can go to many many churches throughout Lviv (and the rest of Europe) when was the last time you've seen a pharmacy museum? The exhibits in the basement with the mannequins look a bit tired and... More

There were several rooms full of old medicines and pharmaceutical equipment. Somebody knowledgeable in the are for sure would be satisfied. The problem was that there was no story behind it so you could just walk around watching all the stuff (there were almost no descriptions and almost nothing in English) and didn't really understand it.

The museum is hidden behind an actual pharmacy. You go in and purchase your tickets from the same person that fill prescriptions. Tickets cost 10 UAH per person, plus an additional 5 UAH if you want to take pictures. (Not 5 UAH per person). The museum is quite unusual, most of which is in Ukrainian, (very little translated to English),... More
