This is a very interesting museum containing numerous artifacts and historical items related to pharmacy. It is well displayed and laid out. This review gets 4stars because the commentary is only in German. It would be 5stars if there was even a little English in...More

I enjoyed going through this part of history. I took lots of pictures. There were items on display that I had never seen. It was a very large display and fun to see.

Informative and interesting, a good explanation of most exhibits in English. Great displays of the various pharmaceutical materials and the old chemists shops

Didn't expect much of this, but there's a lot of interesting or cute items on display. Worth the detour whilst visiting the castle (part of the entry price, esp. if you have a cable car ticket).

My daughter wanted to go see it and we ended up spending a long time seeing how they made medicine 100+ years ago.

if you are interested in the story and evolution of pharmacy (apothecary) you will find a lot of amazing objects.

Larger than it looks from the outside, step in to see the museum, included in the castle price. Centuries of history, artifacts everywhere, and even some remarkable art make this an interesting stop.

This museum is situated off the courtyard of the castle. Several rooms to browse. Really interesting.

You will not believe the things that they used as ingredients before! They pharmacy is full of plants and strange animals parts! Really entertaining! A must see if you visit the castle.
