The Pharmacy Museum of the Jagiellonian University is one of the few museums of this type in the world. Founded in 1946 it is a scientific/didactic unit of the Jagiellonian University Pharmaceutical Faculty. Since 1991 it has been located in the historic bourgeois tenement by the Royal Route, at 25 Florianska St.

The permanent exhibition occupies five levels of the building – from 15th century cellars to the attic. The exhibits gathered here illustrate the history of pharmaceuticals from the Middle Ages to modern times. Among them, there are pharmaceutical utensils, including a collection of majolica from many European manufacturers, mortars of various shapes and sizes, laboratory equipment, medicinal ingredients, memorabilia of distinguished pharmacists, a philatelic collection related to pharmacy, and curios connected with the health care of yore. What is more, the interior of an 18th century chemist’s shop was recreated in the museum, as well as other premises such as the old pharmaceutical laboratory, a cellar with barrels and bottles for curative wines, and an attic for drying and storing healing herbs.
