THE MUSEUM OF PHARMACY

.

















Due to the specific profile, the Museum of Pharmacy of Sibiu (opened in 1972) represents a rarity in its domain on Romanian level, as well as on European one.
The founding of the Museum in the city of Sibiu was double motivated: on one hand, this is the place of the first documented apothecary, mentioned as early as the year 1494; on the other hand, a rich tradition of pharmaceutical activities developed in the area.
At present, the building sheltering the Museum lies in the historical centre of Sibiu, being one of the architectural monuments of historical importance, displaying Gothic and Renaissance features, dating from the year 1568. In this very building has functioned one of the oldest apothecaries in Sibiu, the third in chronological succession, founded around 1600 and named At the Black Bear.
The Museumís collections comprise over 6600 pieces, bringing valuable evidences about the evolution of medication and pharmaceutical techniques for more than three and a half centuries.
