About museum...

Since the end of the 19th century, the Czech pharmacists and pharmacy historigraphers have endeavoured to build up a museum of their profession, but until the present moment have reached only partial and provisional results. The collection which has been gathered by now is administered by the Pharmacy Faculty of Charles University which is charged with the mission of establishing the central Czech Pharmaceutical Museum (CPM).
Since 1972, the Pharmacy Faculty has been trying to build this museum in the hospital of Kuks, a village to the Northwest of the town of Jaroměř. The hospital is a suitable place because of its health-service tradition. The Pharmaceutical Museum will link up with the beautiful, well-preserved baroque pharmacy dating from 1743 which ranks among the cultural, historical, artistic and pharmaceutical heritage of Europe...
