Fodor's Review

This museum showcases original and re-created pharmacy counters and all kinds of beakers and flacons, and old remedies. To balance out the scientific quota, there is also a look at the history of alchemy. The museum is housed in Zum Vorderen Sessel, a home once frequented by Paracelsus. English-language information sheets are available.
