Fodor's Review

This museum showcases original and re-created pharmacy counters and all kinds of beakers and flacons, and old remedies—from preserved crocodiles to mummy paste. All kinds of herbs and teas can be purchased at the lovely shop. The museum is housed in Zum Vorderen Sessel, a home once frequented by Paracelsus. English-language information sheets are available.
