Take a tour of Pharmacy Museum, the oldest pharmacy in town, with a collection of 2,000 medical items dating as far back as 4,000 years. Opened in 1966, this 16-room exposition takes up residence in a building that was a drugstore in 1735. Observe the facade featuring bas-reliefs of the Greek god of medicine and his daughter, the goddess of health. View a ceiling painted by Viennese masters in the 19th century. The rich collection inside features antique pharmaceutical appliances, manuscripts, and dishes. You'll also see one-of-a-kind scales from the 18th century, as well as an ancient symbol of medicine--a bowl with a snake. Visit the site's alchemy workshop in a mysterious underground chamber.

We visited on New Year's Eve with my husband and 2 children (aged 10 and 11) and really enjoyed this place. It was funny to queue to buy the entrance tickets (£1 for adults, 50p for children) behind..... more »
We have a pharmacy museum in Lithuania and not to see similar place in Lviv it would be a shame. So many interesting old items, beautiful little yard, mysteriuos undergrounds of this museum and old..... more »
Well beautiful and unique. Weird and historical stuff to see if you are interested in chemistry, medicine or pharmacy. However place is not very well preserved since it is old building requires more attention. Don’t expect to be satisfied intellectually but do not leave the city without seeing this museum either. You have to pay 30 Grivna to enter, you enter the place by asking to pharmacists since it is a still functioning pharmacy.
One of the most interesting museums in Lviv. But only of you visit it with guide. Museum's dungeon (especially secret room of alchemist) is very impressive. Children liked this place too))
