Bratislava’s 14th century Lekáreň U červeného raka (Red Crab Pharmacy) is one of the oldest in Slovakia – and has been a unique museum since 1953 (as part of City Museum in Bratislava (MMB)).
In September 2001, the exposition closed because in 1999 the city leased the building on Michalská Street to Druhá staromestská – on the condition that it would remain available to the city museum.
The Pharmaceutical Museum relocated during the renovation and furniture was stored. "Part of the ground floor was then modified for the museum, and in 2006 a new smaller Medicine Storage presentation opened," states MMB. And hot off the press: "In the summer of 2023, we are opening both the restored Michalská veža and the Lekáreň U červeného raka."
