Interesting old building with a good set of exhibits explaining the history of the shop. It is busy as it is on all the tourist trails but worth visiting.

This is a Must See place if you are visiting Tallinn. It is one of the oldest working apothecary’s in the world having been run for eleven consecutive generations by the Burchardt family. A highlight is the price list of remedies from 1695.

I loved his pharmacy/ aphothecary. The aphothecary still dispenses medicines amidst a fabulous museum. There is a small crocodile suspended from the ceiling and curious items in jars. Interesting film show and leaflet describing the history of the family and the pharmacy. Free entry. Amazing.

It's worth popping into to see some of the bizarre ingredients they use to use like deer penises but I wouldn't plan your trip around it. It's still a working pharmacy so if you need creams or whatever you can get it there :)

The oldest working Aphothecary is nothing but a tourist trap. In and out in one minute. Busy with tourists. The curious antique shop in the same building surprised me. See for yourself.

Perhaps one of the oldest apothecaries in Europe? The interesting displays of of older parmaceutical remedies and equipment makes for a good visit.
