Cheap to visit, small but full of stuff (it's two museums in one) and the adjancent cafe is wonderful (try their pies!).

View to how pharmacy people lived and worked in 1800’s. Especially the old pharmacy is worth the visit. Interesting also to see how they made medicine back then.

This place took us by surprice. We just walked by, and had spare time explore. Well preserved pharmacy and a private residence. You must come here. One highlight on our Turku trip.

I had lunch at the cafe indoors (smoked Reindeer quiche and fresh cherry juice), a visit to museum, the cake outside afterwards at the cafe again. A delightful spot to relax with friendly staff at both. The House and Pharmacy museum has a small brochure but take the book offered as it has quite a lot of information about the furnishings. I went around and asked questions if the guide but then flicked through the book at reception and revisited the rooms. The hair pictures by the daughter in the bedroom are fascinating and the special chair for ladies to sit with the bustles on their long dresses is interesting. The pharmacy section interesting too with the types of ingredients used and drying room for herbs and plants. Half price for retirees too at 3 euro so if you are retired, don't buy the museum card as cheaper to buy individually.

Interesting, small museum and an old home. You don't have to be interested in pharmacology. The cafe is one of my favourite places in Turku, my happy place. The old crockery, quaint and lush garden, served by kind staff. They serve very tasty stuff baked using old-fashioned recipes.
