Over time, the state has collected intact "shops" to place in the museum. The displays show the development of pharmacies over time. The pictures are not in any particular order but each shows a style from the past.
Some of these remained in families for years until such time as the families moved on to other careers so things were sold off to others, eventually ending up here.
Some of these apothecaries fell into disuse but were brought back into use during World War II when drugs became scarce and the country had to rely on more natural remedies.
Although each has a different style, the make up of each is about the same with drawers for herbs, bottles of things and the tools to make the medicines.
I loved wandering through the museum because I love science, herbs, and history. If you are ever in Heidelberg, you should check it out. Let me know what you think. Thank you for letting me share my journey with you.
