Pharmacy Museum

The pharmacy museum in Schiltach was originally the town hall pharmacy in the market square, which was founded in 1837.

In 1985 it ceased to function as a pharmacy and was re-opened in 1989 as a museum, with its characteristic interior preserved.

The pharmacy has a very impressive Biedermeier root wood dispensary complete with all its original features and fittings; together with the laboratory and the medicine cellar it gives us an insight into the working world of the early pharmacist.

Blick in das Apothekenmuseum

Display cabinets containing collections of powder boxes and inhalators, portable medicine cases in all shapes and sizes, and curiosities such as a frame to correct crooked noses, create an overall picture of how early pharmacies worked.

The displays are accompanied by early examples of advertising, illustrating the application of these pharmaceutical products. Special exhibitions provide in-depth coverage of topics such as the discovery of bacteria, and the effect this discovery had on a pharmacist's work.
