This is an old structure filled with various tools used to produce drugs and potions in the years past. There are some stairs to several floors to observe. I wasn't personally impressed but did find it mildly interesting.

The old pharmacy store and museum is located right in the center. The funny thing is when walk in you can see a regular, little pharmacy selling medicine and stuff. Only then you realize that behind the "modern" part you can also see the old one. The fee is really low, E 0,50, and what you see there is really... More

This museum is part of the walking tour of the Old City provided by InLviv. It's a worthwhile stop, but also dispensable if your time is limited. Lots of old apothecary articles & furnishings. Probably would be of most interest to people with medical backgrounds of some sort.

A pharmacy has been operating in the building since 1735 and it is still a pharmacy. What is most interesting is not the pharmacy exhibits but rather it gives you an idea of layout of a building on the old town square. Particularly interesting is the eerie basements. Located on north east corner of old town square. Entrance fee -... More

Phaacy museum in Lvov could be interesting if someone would think of how to make it interesting. Not nice personal, too dark. All writings are on Latin( no excursion((

This was a nice little discovery - you enter a functional pharmacy that smell very nice, pay a small fee and then get behind the counter and start visiting. Reading some comments here, I have the feeling people have missed a big part of the museum. There's actually a lot to see. First two rooms with medical utensils and medicines... More

I had not visited a pharmacy museum before and did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed my visit. The walls are lined with old shelves stacked with little boxes, antique bottles, vessels, scales and other instruments when medicine was more of an art than a science. This museum is loaded with history.... More

Don't let the facade fool you- this museum tour offers you a look, not only of the storefront of an old pharmacy, but also the storerooms, and winding passages behind and below , where the pharmacists worked, crating and storing their concoctions. Definitely a fun tour!

It's rather an exhibition in the farmacy shop, not a museum. Some old furniture, few containers.. all on 20m2. Come in, see, come out - all in 3mins.

Lviv wouldn't be Lviv without those kind of places. This is an old pharmacy where you can see all those bottles, flasks, glasses, scales... And! It's a working pharmacy too! You can buy some medicine if you need. It's really interesting but watch out the crowd!! You won't feel the atmosphere if the place is too crowded...

Thank Iuliia N
