The Pharmacy Museum will lead you into the history of medicine, health and illness. The Qwensel House displays the life and home of the gentry in 18th century Turku. The city's oldest surviving wooden house holds stylish halls and chambers as well as Finland's oldest pharmacy interior.
In the pharmacy office small souvenirs and post cards are on sale. All-time favourites are sugar candy and The Apothecary's salty liquorice, a popular sweet flavoured with ammonium chloride.
In the summer the beautiful courtyard comes to life. The quaint Café Qwensel offers home-made treats in 18th century fashion. Children are welcome to play apothecary in the Children's Pharmacy.
During Christmas Season the Qwensel House offers a heart-warming refuge from all the buzz and fuss of the city centre. Christmas in the museum is all about ambience.
