About
History of healing - the Peer collection ,,Small, but sophisticated" was the idea behind this specialized pharmaceutical museum, opened in 2002 at Bressanone in South Tyrol, Italy. The particular attraction of the museum lies in its unique combination of pharmacy, architecture and art. The modern showcases and contemporary art projects harmonize with the panelling in wood from the Renaissance area and the murals dated 1620. A rich collection of plants, animals and minerals coming from the whole world and used during the last four centuries as various remedies constitute the centre of the Peer collection. All the texts, explanations and descriptions avoid the use of technical terms and are suitable also for persons who have no background in the subject. Thanks to the clever didactic system, the museum provides general informations for hurried visitors as well as detailed knowledge for experts.

This is a small museum off the beaten path but rather interesting. We got a personal tour from the delightful lady at the desk.

Surprised by the wonderful collection and display
Aug 2018 • Couples
My wife, the retired pharmacist wanted to visit this museum so we stopped in not knowing what to expect. She was enthralled with the collection of many things she had used and many items she had only read about. For a pharmacist this is a must see.

If you’re in Brixen you must see this.
Oct 2017 • Couples
The museum is a part of a 400 year old apothecary and contains only those items that have accumulated on the site over those 400 years. They are beautifully displayed and the lady introducing it clearly loves her job. If you are near Brixen do not miss this. The lady at the door took the time to take us around the display explaining in English as only Italian and German is used through the museum. Brilliant. If you have a Brixen Card entry is free but we donated anyway.

Interesting
Sep 2017 • Couples
You can spend a lot of time here if you are interested in details, or 1/2 hour if you just want a look. There is a ton of information all found in the attic of the building in which the museum is located.

The woman at the front desk was very friendly and passionate about the museum and it’s history. She told us a lot, and was fun to talk to. All the people who work there are volunteers.

Everything is in German and Italian, but they have laminated sheets at the desk explaining many things if you only understand English.

Beautiful location and interesting layout

This is an interesting museum which is well laid out with attractive exhibits but without English translations there is only a limited amount which a non Italian/German speaker can benefit from it,

YOU MAY DO THE AUDIO TOUR IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE. A free App transforms your smartphone into a modern audio guide in for languages and perfectly equips you for an autonomous Pharmacy Museums tour.

Lack of English signage was not a problem!
Feb 2016 • Couples
As noted by a previous reviewer, there is little in the way of English signage, however this should not deter English speakers from visiting this thoughtfully presented collection which has been donated and collated by the family of pharmacists who have been in business in the building for over 400 years. A modern pharmacy is in the building housing the museum.

2 interesting rooms of artifacts, but...
Jun 2015
I know, I know, I shouldn't expect English when I travel to South Tyrol. This little museum has two rooms of non-scary medical devices, and fun little drawers of "natural" medicines (from plants and herbs, to beaver scent glands and rhinoceros horns). Everything is well labelled in Italian and German. There isn't much in the way of gory medical history as seen in medical museums in Ingolstadt, Germany and Chicago, USA. The hours are limited. But if you speak one of the two regional languages and are into medical history, this will be a quick yet insightful stop for you.
