The pharmacy was founded in the early 15th century and has run continuously in the same building ever since. Explore the on-site museum, which displays a small collection of historic medical tools and others used by physicians in the past. You'll find many relics from the business over the years, including an array of medieval and Renaissance-era remedies. For a souvenir, pick up some claret, a spiced Germanic wine, from the pharmacy's gift shop.

Town Hall Pharmacy Reviews
Oldest Estonian pharmacy that is located at Town Hall. This pharmacy still operates and serves customers. People who work there have great knowledge about medicines and history. more »
A cross between a museum and a working pharmacy. Worth a visit so check it out . We found it very interesting and could have stayed much longer more »
It's a very old pharmacy store (from the 15th century) that still operates as a pharmacy. Hard to miss it if one is on the old town square. It's worth to go inside as the interiors are preserved (though not of 15th century) and there is a small exhibition to see.
We just saw it from outside as badluck could be it is closed on Sunday's.
