There are poisons, leeches, unicorn horns, Spanish fly, Polish quills, and centipedes. In the Museum of Pharmacy of the Jagiellonian University, you will find magical mixtures and mysterious apothecary instruments. It is one of the few museums of this kind in the world.
Mandragora that was once used in magical rituals, magical herbs, morphine and many powders whose purpose is known only to the initiated, it’s all here. The Museum of Pharmacy, which takes visitors into the world of herbs and medicines and shows the development of science and pharmacy, is also an excellent place to look in at the profession’s secrets. The collections are exhibited in the rooms of the 14th-century building at 25 Floriańska Street. They include furniture and pharmacy utensils from various periods, old medicinal raw materials of plant, mineral and animal origin, and old apothecary utensils (mortars, presses, filters, capsules for gilding pills, pill dispensers, herbal choppers). The Museum also has old prints (e.g. a Greek-Latin edition of the complete works of Hippocrates, medieval and modern apothecary manuals, official and unofficial medical directories and herbarium specimens). One of the Museum's peculiarities is undoubtedly an exhibit on the Polish kołtun, the only disease that has been given a Polish name.
