an extraordinary piece of history
May 2017 • Couples
this pharmacy is a travel back to middle age, even if it was open until the XXth century. The place is best explained via a guide since one might miss part of the information

A very worthwhile visit!

Well worth the fairly small entry cost, takes about an hour but other things nearby are worth a look.

There are three small rooms with bottles, ceramic jars, mortar and pestles, boxes, and some instruments. Its all arranges as in an old pharmacy (not a store). We were provided descriptions in English, which included some old recipes. It is just across the canal and next to the stained glass display (free entry) and on the way to couple museums and a basilica. It takes about half hour and provides an interesting view into the past..

Very unusual attraction

This is a real step into the past. See how medicine used to be done and some of the outlandish and to be honest, disgusting things they used to make "cures" from. Be sure to ask for a loan of the free English guide book if you need it.

little exhibition

Most information you can read is readily available from other sources.

The exhibition has one lovely room and that's about it.

Reviews as above. Suggestion to develop further the history of the ingredients used - had this on a piece of paper to take away. Loved it though, good value for 2€

Lovely historic building
Sep 2014 • Couples
At 2 euros per adult, this lovely 18th century apothecary is delightful. The lady gave us both English language booklets which were very informative and interesting. Highly recommended.

Good overview of past medicine
Mar 2014 • Couples
Given the current interest in "natural medicines", it can be an eye-opener to consider the ghastly recipes our ancestors would readily absorb to cure their illnesses. I guess it's like homeopathy: a combination of inefffective potions and the placebo effect can still cure 50% of diseases, if they don't end up killing you.
My only advice is to display some of the samples of water-lillies, mastic and crayfish eyes in glass bottles rather than in discoloured plastic boxes. Otherwise the exhibition is quite comprehensive.
