In autumn 2002, the Museum of Pharmacy in Brixen (Bressanone) opened its doors to the public for the first time. Its unique collection of exhibits welcomes visitors - experts and novices alike - to an exciting journey of the history of pharmaceutical drug making. The instruments on display, including pill press machines and suppository molds, glassware, jars and packaging have all been used in our pharmacy, some of them for more than 400 years. They serve as impressive evidence of the evolution of science in a pharmaceutical context.
