  • The Pharmacy Museum has a collection spanning 500 million years of the universal history of health and disease. It brings together objects of rare historical, artistic, anthropological and scientific value from such far-flung and bygone civilisations and cultures as those of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, the Incas, the Aztecs, Islam, Africa, Tibet, China and Japan, amongst others. Portugal's pharmaceutical heritage is represented by the excellent reconstruction of Porto's Estácio Pharmacy, which used to be in Rua Sá da Bandeira. The reconstruction of the Islamic Pharmacy that was once housed in a 19th Century Ottoman Empire Palace in Damascus was also recently opened to the public.
