“Matanzas Pharmacy Museum”

Pharmaceutical Museum
Ranked #1 of 40 things to do in Matanzas
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed February 2, 2013

On a day tour of Matanzas, a up-country farm and the Bellamar Caves, we visited the Pharmacy Museum. Opened in 1832, and turned into a museum before the end of the 1800s [as I recall], this look into the past provided us with an interesting view of medical practices and Cuban lifestyles in the late 1800s. Well worth seeing if you are in Matanzas. It's even worth going there as a destination because you'll get to see a "real" Cuban town where real Cubans live.

We were actually visiting the museum during hurricane sandy, so the weather was horrible to see sights around the building. It was very interesting to see all the old pharmaceutical stuff, including the first syringes ever made. Downfall, you pay a fee to take pictures.
