Come and visit the "Children´s Pharmacy" - hands on for kids

In room 4 of the German Pharmacy Museum our younger visitors are invited to stay and enjoy themselves: It’s equipped with a preparation table and a drawer cabinet just like a traditional community pharmacy. All parts here are rebuilt and therefore accessible to our smaller guests – and the grown-ups as well. In the top rack typical pharmacy vessels are waiting, filled with different tea ingredients, which can (and might!) be opened: What does rasped licorice root look like? And how does Icelandic Moss smell, by the way?

Although we call this area our “Children’s pharmacy” the great number of adults who can be found there sniffling at open tea tins and discussing all the different substances and ingredients available indicate that the offers here seem to fascinate not only the kids!

Flavour Station

A small flavour station invites children to sniffle and divine several substances. What’s scenting so delicious in the vessels numbered 1 to 6? Guess and make your notes in the printed form prepared for you. You want to know if you were right? Simply ask our museum employees at the counters in the entrance hall or in the museum’s shop – they will help!
