Fascinating.....
Dec 2019
A deepening sensation of being in a time warp as one walks around this area, is further emphasised by the Pharmacy Museum as one is truly taken back to the earliest days of life in Havana.

Magnificent Interior
Dec 2019
Certainly a magnificent interior with soaring ceilings and gorgeous wood. Well worth taking a few minutes too walk inside and take a look.

This will only take you a few minutes but it is a fascinating little museum. There are beautiful windows and woodwork inside, ancient medicine bottles and pharmaceutical goods from days gone by. Its a quick walk through, no cost and very interesting

Very interesting
Oct 2019
Very well taken care for and frozen in time, but still selling some staff. We bought real bath sponges.
Interesting to see and will not take a lot of time. They even have a real human skeleton...

A step back in time

We didn't spend long at this museum but it was an interesting look back in time at how pharmacies used to operate. Free entrance.

So much history
May 2019
I loved walking through the pharmacy museum. The entire building was amazing; the lighting, the floors, the shelves of apothecary jars. I brought a few home with me to remind me of my day at Taquechel.

Pretty cool spot in old Havana

Take a stroll down to the Pharmacy museum just to see how medicine was stored and distributed. It's quick, easy and interesting to see.

Old School pharmacy museum
Nov 2018 • Couples
This is a five minute stop-off when wandering round the old town - the gorgeous wooden counter and cabinets, and the endless old jars which contained the various herbs and remedies give a glimpse into a past before everything became pre-packed in plastic bottles.

Worth seeing just for the awe factor - you can easily imagine the aromas of jars opening and seeing the cures to all manner of ailments measured out. As good as any historical shop I've ever seen.

An interesting mix of museum and today’s drugstore.
May 2019 • Friends
When we walked in I thought it was only an old museum with many of the old drug canisters on display from floor to ceiling. There were also historical records and documents showing drug sales from around 1900. They did also offer current products for sale. What was astounding was the limited quantity of and variety of items which for us seemed reasonable in price but for the average Cuban the prices would have been completely unaffordable due to the widespread poverty.

Interesting place to walk by

Not something to go out of your way to see but interesting on a walking tour. We would recommend a cigar factory tour as much more fun
