This was a stop on our tour in old Havana. Very nice place. The stiens on the shelfs were beautiful. Saw some interesting items while in here. It was a very nice stop.

We walked by this place and we popped our heads in for a quick look. I had no idea that this was a museum. It just looked like an interesting old pharmacy that had kept all its old gear. You've been warned, do go in!

All the original jars that held the medicine and we’re all the blending and dispensing of that medicine took place. The original recipe book is still there in a glass case.

A great stop especially when it is hot outside. Entrance is free and the old instruments and other items are fun to look at.

This is a small museum but is interesting with many jars of medicines on display. It serves as a museum but is also a working pharmacy. We spent 10 minutes here and that was plenty.

The bottles in the pharmacy was beautiful and the history of the pharmacy was interesting to hear. It has been very well maintained.

This pharmacy was established over a 100 years ago - well maintained , still offering services but the real glory is the past - an amazing "museum " !!

There are primarily old and some not so old pharmacy bottles in tall display cases that are for view. Some over the counter meds are sold here at high prices. This is a small museum with mostly jars.

A nice little museum with old jars that used to keep various ingredients. You can buy meds here still but very expensive.
