50 percent of the price of tickets and souvenirs on Saturday
The JGL Pharmacy Museum is celebrating its second birthday, and so far it has successfully positioned itself on the cultural and touristic map of Rijeka and has become recognizable among Rijeka residents and guests. This is confirmed by numerous tourists who specifically visit the museum, as well as many school groups who come to the JGL Pharmacy Museum in an organized manner, where they learn about the city, national and world history of pharmacy with the help of modern technology and curiosities.
Two years have passed since the ceremonial opening of the JGL Pharmacy Museum in Užarska Street in Rijeka. In the year Rijeka was marked as the European Capital of Culture, JGL, as the largest Croatian-owned pharmaceutical company, made its contribution and opened a specialized historical museum. In demanding times for the activities of cultural institutions, the JGL Pharmacy Museum, in addition to the constant growth in the number of visitors, has so far realized several projects of a local and national character, such as an exhibition about pharmacies in Rijeka from the beginning of the 20th century and an exhibition on the occasion of the jubilee of 750 years of pharmacy in Croatia.
In order to continue the success story, the JGL Pharmacy Museum is preparing an exhibition about the Pharmacy and Cosmetic Laboratory “Alga”, which, in cooperation with the Museum of the City of Rijeka, will open at the beginning of next year.
The mission of our Museum is the affirmation of pharmacy and the production of medicines as part of the health and cultural identity, which throughout history has been a significant factor in the spiritual and economic progress of the City and County, and remains so today. Our wish is for the museum to become a reference institution in researching the history of pharmacy, a tourist attraction and an educational center for future employees in the pharmaceutical field.
For its second birthday, the JGL Museum of Pharmacy will give all visitors a 50 percent discount on ticket prices and part of the museum’s souvenir assortment on Saturday, October 22.
