Lonely Planet review
The surprisingly interesting German Pharmacy Museum, off the Schlosshof, illustrates the history of Western pharmacology, in which Germany played a central role. Exhibits include pharmacies from the early 1700s and the Napoleonic era. Kids can use a mortar and a pestle to blend their own herbal tea (details available at the entrance). Most signs are in English.
