Dear friends, the JGL Pharmacy Museum and the City Museum Rijeka are preparing an exhibition about the Alga Sušak Pharmacy and Cosmetic Laboratory, which played an important role in the economic life of Rijeka and Sušak in the interwar period.

The most famous preparation of this laboratory is precisely “Alga for massage” which was used literally all over the world in the first half of the 20th century.

We hereby ask all of you who have any objects, information, stories related to the Alga Laboratory to contact the JGL Museum of Pharmacy or the Museum of the City of Rijeka through the inbox and at the e-mail addresses or

The exhibition about Alga will be opened at the beginning of next year in the Kockica of the Museum of the City of Rijeka.
