I wasn’t too sure at the beginning but I thought, why not? It’s a historic building and was still a working pharmacy only a few years ago. The lady run the museum explained to me all the history and interesting facts about herbs and scent. I stayed much longer that I thought I would!

It is very ambitious to manage a museum (or museumlike object) without staff that speak minimally basic English. My wish to visit this place stayed unsatisfied due to the miss of communication.

Well worth a look inside. Step inside and you are transported back in time. Everything was perfectly preserved.

The "Fekete Sas" Chemist's shop and museum is a very very small place that displays a Pharmacy from the beginning of the 20th Century. Most of the furniture and vials are original and are over 100 years old. In another room there is a small museum dedicated to the Hungarian Prisoners of War who fell into the hands of the Italians during the First World War. What makes the museum REALLY interesting is the owner who is capable and ready to tell you a HUGE amount of information about the history of Hungary, of Szekesfehervar and of the wars that Hungary went through throughout its History. Speaking with him is definitely worth your time, especially if you speak Hungarian.

First of all, a heads up: when you open the door and step in, you're essentially inside the museum, so have the money ready to buy the ticket. If you can, bring a friend who speaks Hungarian so they can translate for you. The lady is very knowledgeable but does not speak English. The pharmacy was operational from the mid 1700s to1971. At the beginning it was the only pharmacy in the entire county. The original location was directly across the street but was moved to its current location in the mid 1800s. The medicine containers have been restored to their original color - they were painted several times over the centuries to accommodate the current style of the era. Some still smell like the herbs that were stored in them. Very interesting stuff but a lot will be lost without a translator. My 10 year old thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
