Pharmacy Museum Opens in Altai

Museum "Mountain Pharmacy" dedicated to the history of development of chemist's business in Altai has opened in Barnaul.
      According to the regional authorities, the museum will be housed in the building of a drugstore, which appeared in the 18th century. The restoration has been carried out since 2010 and the museum opening is timed to the 75th anniversary of the Altai Territory.
      The mountain pharmacy appeared during the existence of mining plants of Akinfiy Demidov. It played an important role in supply of hospitals of the mountainous area with medicines and nursing necessities. In 1793 the wooden building of the drugstore was replaced with a new brick construction, where the Mountain Pharmacy Museum has been settled now.
