The Chemist’s museum is a state museum in Lvov. It is the museum of the pharmacy history.It was opened in 1966 in the building of ancient drug store.

The ancient drug store in Lvov under the Black Eagle was opened in 1735 in the city center by pharmacist Natorp. It used to be the only pharmacy in the city back then. The drug store is working even today. But also it united unique items collected all over Ukraine and Europe.

The pieces were collected during two and a half centuries. The drug store still has its old and unique style, the interior and paintings on the celling were created in the beginning of XX century they symbolize four elements: water, fire, air and land. The exposition has more than 3000 items and covers the area of 700 square meters.

The most interesting item in the trade hall is pharmaceutical balance. In the second hall there used to be a room where they kept medicines, some equipment from different epochs and old patent pills. The interior of the third hall represents the ancient chemist’s laboratory.

There is also the outhouse, built in XV-XVI centuries. There you can see the alchemist’s laboratory, recreated following ancient paintings and engravings.

Also there is a library that counts more than 3000 books. In the old basements you can see the interior of XVIII century. The yard looks like the household of a wealthy petty bourgeois, who lived in XVI-XVII century.

The main attraction of the museum is definitely the “iron wine” (wine rich in iron) that every visitor should definitely try.
