Austria’s Drugstore Museum

text

Located in Vienna’s 9th district, in the Währinger Straße 14, Austria’s Drugstore Museum has a long history, tracing back to 1899 as the society of Austria’s druggists started to document the history of drugstores and the work life of a druggist to support future druggists with their learning process.

Today the museum displays its collection of nature prints, an impressive collection of herbs, old cameras and many more. Especially their herbarium is quite impressive, documenting most plants that can be found all over Central Europe. They also display a big collection of mortars – the symbol of druggists.

The museum is open every first and third Wednesday of the month from 2pm to 5pm. More information can be found here
