Muzeum Farmacji Uniwersytetu Jagiellońskiego Kraków
Museum of Pharmacy of Jagiellonian University in Krakow
While searching for interesting places to see in Krakow, it is worth visiting the Museum of Pharmacy of Jagiellonian University. Established in 1946, this museum will bring you into the world of a functioning old pharmacy. The collections are exhibited in all rooms of the historical 14th-century tenement house at 25 Floriańska Street. They include furniture and pharmacy utensils from various eras, old pharmaceutical raw materials of plant, mineral and animal origin, old pharmaceutical tools (mortars, presses, filters, capsules for gilding pills, sugar coating machine, slicing machines for crushing herbs), old prints (e.g., a Greek-Latin edition of the Complete Works of Hippocrates, medieval and modern pharmacy textbooks, official and unofficial drug lists, herbariums, pharmacist's manuals in longhand). One of the museum's peculiarities is certainly the Polish plait, the only disease to contain the adjective ‘Polish’ in its name.
