Pharmacy Museum - details and images

Sibiu in 1494 opened the first pharmacy in the country, and here he worked a year and a half, the German physician Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), creator of homeopathy.

The museum building was built in the fifteenth century, which since 1568 has operated a pharmacy. Since 1972 houses the Museum of the History of Pharmacy, with over 6,600 pieces from 67 pharmacies in 32 cities.

The museum includes three exhibition sections: oficina (store pharmacy) with furniture from Vienna (1902), the laboratory where they are from different eras pharmaceutical equipment, vessels, wood, porcelain, glass, bronze or iron mortars, scales and weights pharmaceutical style Vienna, technical and medical tools, surgical kits, microscopes used in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries (the oldest object in the collection is a bronze mortar, dated 1597) and the homeopathic presenting bags, bottles and homeopathic preparations.

Homeopathy Collection illustrates homeopathic therapy tradition in Sibiu. It is not without significance that the founder of therapeutic doctrines, Samuel Hahnemann, lived and worked in Sibiu, between 1777-1779, as a physician and secretary of Baron Samuel von Brukenthal, governor of Transylvania.

It is estimated that during this period he was able to learn many aspects of popular medications practiced in Transylvania, issues that have contributed to inspiring grounding homeopathic doctrine.

Homeopathy museum's collection includes over 2,900 pieces, namely bags and bottles of homeopathic preparations, which were taken from the old pharmacy Sibiu The Angel.
