Great experience! Had some difficulty finding the place, but once I found it I enjoyed my visit very much. The pharmacy collection, although small, is unique and was well described by the curator. Needs some restoration on the upper floor and perhaps some literature to take home, but otherwise a nice stop along the historic Fortaleza street.
Great experience! Getting into the museum is like traveling in time. It's a rather small museum, but big in ambiance. The museum guide was so informative, and better, so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!!
