The Pharmacy Museum is a treasure trove of information, medicines, books, and equipment dating back to the late 1800s.

Housed on the first floor of Pragstein Castle, the Museum is intended to preserve the history of pharmacy and to provide the public with an opportunity to learn more about the profession of pharmacy, which is as old as time itself.
The first room of the Museum contains a collection of antique pharmacy books, pharmacopoeias, prescription files, and daily journals from the late 18th to the early 20th century.
Three more rooms show the dispensatory in a 19th century compounding drugstore: The museum showcases the work area and storage for herbals and various pharmaceuticals that pharmacists used in their compounding practice. Compounding formulas and glass medicine bottles that contained plant extracts and inorganic ingredients that would be used to compound a patient’s prescription would normally be found in any pharmacy of that time.
In addition, there is a rich collection of tools and equipment, such as microscopes, scales, measuring instruments as well as store fixtures, and artifacts, including several large drug store fixtures and fittings.
