    It is the second time for me to visit the museum.

    Pros:
    1. Entrance accessible for the wheelchair.
    2. It is free entry on the second week of the month on Sunday.
    3. It is perfect place to spend with family especially kids (up to 40 mins to spend there).
    4. They have many interesting things to observe in this museum.
    5. The workers can help your kids with some explanation of the things.
    6. The place is quite big and clean.
    7. Wearing a mask is a must.

    Cons:
    1. It is a bit difficult to find free parking nearby.

    Located in an industrial part of Porto, approximately 10 minutes from the city centre by train, this is a small but interesting museum (when I say small, I mean the whole visit took around 30 minutes, and that was with us taking our time!) It is in the middle of a more industrial part of Porto, and the museum itself is located on the bottom floor of a pharmaceutical company.

    With the Porto Card, entry was only 2.50 Euro. We were given information in English, which provided background to all of the exhibits. Some of the information was poorly translated at times, and was not always presented in logical order. Despite that, it was well worth a morning trip. There was only the two of us when we visited, so definitely one of the quieter museums we have been to!

    The museum is very small (two rooms), situated in part of an old hospital. Entrance fee was 1 euro per person. You see a 10 min movie about establishment and function of the first pharmacy in Porto. The exhibition includes historical phamaceutical ingredients and various tools e.g. a pill press. Staff was very kind and helpfull. We loved spending 30 min in this historical setting.
