This is a place where you can view and read about old cures that were used in Estonia, as it is the oldest pharmacy in Europe and located right in the town square. This is still a working pharmacy, but looks like most people go there is view the items on display. Interesting souvenirs you can buy while there if you can get someone to serve you.
Worth the quick detour.

I believe this is the oldest working pharmacy in Europe. Take a walk to the back of the pharmacy to see many of the ancient cures that were used. Fascinating. Definitely worth a visit!!

For all those who'd love to learn about medicine how it was centuries ago. Though, be careful not to faint seeing embalmed human's hand :)

This is Europe's oldest continuously operating pharmacy and has been opened since 1422. Today it operates as both a museum and a pharmacy. Well worth a look.

We are in the same business so always seem to drift into the old pharmacies wherever we visit. This one was quite pleasant and is within a working pharmacy just off the main square
