Pharmacy Museum Bressanone

In the historic centre of Bressanone, the upper floor of a pharmacy has been transformed into a museum.

The history-charged Peer pharmacy in Via Ponte Aquila in Bressanone, in 2002 inaugurated a small but mighty museum, short “PMB”, providing an interesting insight into 400 years of healing arts, herbalism and various delusions. Not only remedies are exhibited, but also packages and much more. On a surface of 150 sqm, there are also some curiosities, such as the head of an armadillo, a piece of an Egypt mummy as well as gilded pills. By the way, sugared isopods were administered against fever a long time ago…

Present-day products make the exhibition complete. There is also a library with works of different centuries, moreover you get an insight into a pharmacy laboratory and you get to know the appliances of a pharmacist. Up to the 19th century, almost all medication was produced in the own laboratory.

Again and again, there are temporary exhibitions, e.g. on poisonous plants (2015) or on minerals and metals in pharmacy (2016/2017). Today the Pharmacy Museum Bressanone is open all-the-year and administered by the volunteer association “recipe!”.
