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

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.

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

A small old pharmacy with some interesting objects on display, the shop still acts as a pharmacy selling all the things a modern pharmacy sells. Can be done in a few minutes .

Quite small and very interesting, Lviv has many small specialist museums that charge very little for entry and you can visit them for maybe 1 hour. This one is really good.

An interesting place to visit. Would benefit from labels in English. A bit of a time travel. Worth a quick visit. We enjoyed it,
