Museum is closed 3.-9.5. because of strike.

The Pharmacy Museum will lead you into the history of medicine. The Qwensel House displays the life and home of the gentry in 18th century Turku.

The entrance to the museum is through the courtyard. There is also a small museumshop next to ticketing office.

In the summer the beautiful courtyard comes to life. The quaint Café Qwensel offers home-made treats in 18th century fashion. Children are welcome to play apothecary in the Children’s Pharmacy.

During Christmas Season the Qwensel House offers a heart-warming refuge from all the buzz and fuss of the city centre. Christmas in the museum is all about ambience.
