“Boooooooooooooooooooooooring!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Old pharmacies can be found anywhere in Europe. I would stop for a wonderful room with great atmosphere. In this case we have a simple room with some old furniture and a few old things. But nothing to remember.

“Living History in the Old Town Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Whilst in Tallinn's old town square visit the old apothecary which is housed bang opposite the town hall. It really is a living museum with exhibits of medieval apothecary practice and also housing present day medical needs. Good view of the townhall from the windows too.

“Senic AND useful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Tripped up and sprained by ankle while walking around Tallinn. So needed some bandages and pain killers and found this amazing place. A pharmacy that looked to be straight out of the nineteenth century. redolent with history, yet was still able to provide all the modern medical aids I needed.

“Historical but still being used”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Not a great deal to see, apart from a wonderful interior and some medical displays, but it's worth a visit, especially if there aren't too many people in there.

“Olde style apothek (pharmacy)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Working pharmacy which doubles up as a museum. Interesting exhibits of old "medicine"/ treatments from times gone by. Free to enter and can be see in as little as a 5-20mins. Still designed in it's old style.
Just off the town square.
