Brixen Pharmacy Museum - A 400-year journey to discover medicine


Pharmacies once & now

In the past, pharmacies impress their clients with exotic and whimsical things: For instance, coconuts, turtles or snakes were hanging from the ceilings. These objects should arouse curiosity and a sense of awe. Today, such curiosities are no more found in pharmacies but in the Museum of Pharmacy in Brixen for instance. Here, you can visit a crocodile, the head of an armadillo, a piece of an Egyptian mummy and the hoof of a moose.

The museum also amazes its visitors with information about historic pharmaceuticals: For instance, taking sugared wood louses was meant to help against fever. Exciting, what kind of things from the flora and fauna were taken for the preparation of medicines during the centuries. And still today, ingredients f exotic plants are researched on their possible healing effect in pharmacy.

The library shows books from five centuries, how various fields of natural science meet in pharmacy: Visitors browse through herb books and recipe collections, written works on physics and chemistry, in medical disquisitions and botanical books. Interesting as well is the laboratory area with distillery devices and crucibles. Until the 19th century, pharmacists had produced almost all medicines in their own laboratory.
