This museum is a must see for anyone who has interests in the medical field. As you wander through the apothecary section of this historical estate you will receive a glimpse of how diseases were treated in earlier times.

Wonderful history and well preserved details. The highlight of the interesting castle. Be sure to explore the grounds too. It was featured on the Smithsonian Channel's Wild Castles program.
