Collection of Medicinal Products

The collection includes medicines produced by world-famous European pharma companies, major producers in Latvia and small local pharmacies, alongside medicinal preparations and herbariums, representing the wide world of treatment agents.

The collection includes the products of Merck, Bayer, Boehringer Ingelheim, Novartis, Roche and other major producers of medicines. The history of Latvian pharmacology is also widely represented, from the first chemical pharmaceutics laboratory established in the early 20th century, to the early industrial producers Medfro and Farmazāns, to companies which are currently active such as Grindeks, Olainfarm and Riga pharmaceutical factory (Rīgas farmaceitiskā fabrika).
