Attraction details
Owner description: History museum focusing on the history of pharmacy in Transylvania, in the original location of the most famous pharmacy in Cluj-Napoca. The rooms preserve their original functions: the Officina - where medicine was actually sold, the storage rooms, and the laboratory, reconstructed in the basement. There is also a more recent collection of hospital equipment.

one of the best attractions / unknown to locals unfortunately. A lot of people from Cluj don`t even know about this great place.
You have to go there, so you can understand how medicine evolved in just a short period, and how people use to medicate them.
Great place.

Let me start with a disclaimer: I'm a pharmacist, so this subject matter interests me very much. The docent gave us a nice and through guided tour in English. In addition to the usual pharmaceutical bottles and scales, there was a laboratory in the basement that was very interesting. I wish I could have taken photos. Although I bought the well-done Romanian/English guide to the museum, there were a number of photos I would have taken that weren't captured in the book.

Very interesting small museum situated in the centre of Cluj-Napoca. Guided tour gives brief insight into the history of pharmacy. Dispays of jars, implements, tools, pestles and containers.

It is a small and cosy museum, it takes about 20-30minutes to visit and it offfers a great array of farmaceutical objects and information.
