Pharmacy Museum and The Qwensel House

The oldest surviving wooden house in Turku holds charming chambers as well as Finland's oldest pharmacy interior.

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.

NB. In accordance with the Finnish Government’s decision Pharmacy Museum and The Qwensel House will remain closed until 13 April 2020 due to the coronavirus epidemic. Guided tours and events are all cancelled until the end of April.
