It probably does not take long to go around the whole site. But it was a least quiet and nice compare with the busy Heidleberg-Castle. It's also very educational for the kids. Everything there is very well-informed. I am glad that the kids also find it interesting, too.

I spend like an hour at this museum which is really interesting for people interested in medicine/pharmaceutical or naturalist approach between the 1700 /1800 . Great set up millions of interesting objects used to keep and make medicines

This museum is a bit of a little oasis in the bussy castle. Although this might also be because we were late. Not so much to see in the museum actually. But nice setting and a change to see some of the castle inside.

I don't know why it's there, but I'm glad it is. It's quirky and informative and I love weird museums. It was also indoors and it was snowing and freezing outside, so that was definitely an added bonus. It's free with admission to the castle and takes about 25 minutes to go through properly.

Nice and interesting museum, and over all is free!! The history of the medicine in Germany through the time. You can pay a tour guide for 3 € who would be helpful in case u are interested in the medicine history.

This is a great science museum and one that has been beautifully curated. Enjoyed the history and the amazing displays as well as the childs section. Great for ideas as a teacher.

I learned a lot of history! And got warmed up from the cold outside. Worth the time - children would enjoy.

Not a must, but if history is your thing, this museum is extremely interesting. I loved it, and spent over an hour inside.

This by far is one of the best Pharmacy Museum I have every visited. The signs and history were extremely thorough and the collection extensive. They had several dull shops set up and the downstairs lab was cool and insightful. Visiting the museum is included in seeing the castle and its little gift shop is really nice.
