Sächsisches Apothekenmuseum Leipzig

The Saxon Pharmacy Museum is located in the building of the former „Central-Apotheke”, right next to St. Thomas Church, at Thomaskirchhof 12. The museum was opened on July 17, 1999.

The permanent exhibition is dedicated to the history of Saxon pharmacies.

Historical books and formulations, sculptures and faiences provide an insight into the traditional profession of pharmacist.

Another part of the exhibition is dedicated to the history of homeopathy.

Visitors will see pharmaceutical instruments like pill gilders and ergot mills; learn about important people such as Heinrich Link, Samuel Hahnemann and Willmar Schwabe, and (under supervision) can even press their own tablets.

Outside the museums opening hours, the rooms can be rented for events.
