Apothecary of Poligny

Domaine(s) : Health

Region : Franche-Comté


The pharmacy of Poligny is located at the Hotel-Dieu which was built in the 17th century and still has its cloister.
The most important part of this museum is the 18th century pharmacy, registered as historical monument, which has a large collection of pottery made in Poligny and in Nevers.


Two hours allow you to progress in your knowledge of the 18th century medicine. Disclaimer : The management team of the destination has the possibility to change the opening days and hours without prior communication.


Utensils go from the storage of medicines in the faience of the pharmacy to pewter, brass and bronze serving dishes for the sick or to the manufacture of drugs through a patient's bedside table and a measuring instrument.

If you try to uncript the amazing recipes of the prepared medications at that time, you'll be surprised by the secrets that you will read.
