Thuringian Pharmacy Museum in the “Rosenthal House“

Thüringer Apothekenmuseum im „Haus Rosenthal“

The refurbished historic building “Rosenthal House“ was constructed in 1515 and since 2013 has accommodated the new Thuringian Pharmacy Museum which is the only one of this kind in Thuringia.

The Museum on the first floor of this particular architectural monument represents a comprehensive collection and reflects the changes in the pharmaceutical industry from the 18th up to the 20th century, starting with the life and work of the Langensalza pharmacist Johann Christian Wiegleb (1732-1800). Thanks to generous donations, the pharmaceutical history can thus be experienced. In the adjoining pharmacist garden, domestic medical herbs are blooming. The garden is opened from 01 May until 31 October each year.
