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...

A fun tour for families. Well done, but very little historic or factual information. Good for entertainment, younger children.

This was the first thing I did in Lviv after wandering around a little bit. It was really interesting, even if I didn't understand anything that was being said. The guide seemed to be very knowledgeable and funny even though it was all in Ukrainian.
