Pharmacy museum was included to our subterranean of Lviv tour. So we had a guide and it was very helpful! Without guide can be boring.

To be honest, It is a normal pharmacy instead of a Museum. There is nothing so special inside. Entrance is free.

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

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
