The Pharmacy Museum of Collegium Medicum of the Jagiellonian University is located at 25 Floriańska Street and it is one of the largest institutions of this type in Europe. The museum was established in 1946. The organizer and the first director of the museum was Dr. Stanisław Proń. In the following years, exhibits were collected from over 1,200 pharmacies. Today it has over 220,000. exhibits. There are plenty of items for the old pharmacy art, laboratory tools from the 16th century made of bronze and marble, old furniture and collections of pharmacy emblems. On the first floor there is a room dedicated to Ignacy Łukasiewicz – pharmacist, pioneer in the field of crude oil distillation and inventor of the kerosene lamp. In the room on the second floor, a part of the exhibition is devoted to Tadeusz Pankiewicz, who ran an Eagle Pharmacy during the occupation.
Next to the museum, there is a library with about 8,000 books and other items, including many rare books, i.e. valuable old prints from 1945, pharmaceutical works from later centuries, as well as a photocopy of the prescription written by Nicolaus Copernicus.
