The tour is only in italian, though they did give us a (10+ page) booklet that presumably covered most of the same things. The tour visited three rooms which had a range of historically relevant medical artefacts but all signs were only in Italian. The...More

The old pharmacy is definitely great and beautiful and worth seeing. However the tour itself was disappointing. First of all it was 1.5h long, far too long for what there was to see and 10 Euros seems an excessive price. The tour was only in...More

Where art meets history and science. Mind blowing. A must see. Make sure you check the opening hours and days. Our great volunteer guide, Mr. Camillo, was not only knowledgeable but also enthusiastic. I'd give it a triple thumbs up!!

A pharmacy where science and alchemy blend. Stunning stucco, paintings, furniture. A magical place. Interesting also the Museum of Health Arts. Is inside a hospital that cures patients for over 500 years ... amazing. Inquire about opening hours!

After reading other reviews I was excited to go and see this interesting medical museum. Upon arrival we were told that you can only see the museum with a guided tour at 10 euros each. No problem. Tours give you a lot more information right?...More
