Great museum inside the castle. Not very often you get to see a pharmacy museum. The exhibition is amazing. Small in size but it's included in your castle visit.

Loved this! Part of Heidelberg Castle and included in the entry fee. English and German information. Much larger than I thought it would be. Well worth the visit. Has a lovely little shop attached. Also a 'hands on' part for children.

My 11 yo and I thoroughly enjoyed this museum. Loads to learn and even a children's apothecary with scent- quiz! Even better if more was translated to English.

You will be able to see this in the Schloss Castle. Not much to it unless you are a science history buff. It was very interesting to learn how far pharmaceutical technology has come.

Being located right inside Heidelberg castle we weren't excepting to go inside of here. But since the castle was rather quickly looked at, we spent most of our time at the Museum. The information was great and everything was very well preserved. Overall this museum...More

In fact This place is a couple of rooms in the part of the castle. You can see ald pharmacy systems, tools, and materials inside the museum.

Made the Heidelberger castle trip worth double or triple the price - comprehensive presentation of drugs through the ages - ethics considerations - printing press factors - religious too A stand alone STRONG reason to visit Heidelberg

Place is very interesting but museum is not that small, so if you are tired visiting can be a little tiring. You can see reconstruction of old drugstores and laboratory, old bottles, symbols, herbals. It is really nice!
