Old Town—past and present views (walk)

A walk demonstrating changes taking place in the oldest part of Warsaw—often very subtle, and yet reflecting the situation as well as social and cultural transformations resulting from both long-term processes and violent historical events. We will ponder over whether and how a small quarter can focus in itself and demonstrate several hundred years of history of the entire city.

What has changed and why, and what has remained the same?

We will compare the views of Warsaw today with their equivalents from various historic eras and we will learn how to read a city using the top-down approach.

Duration: 90 minutes

Health from the meadow

What are herbs and medicinal plants? Where can we collect them, how do they smell, and what do we use them for? What smells better – an oil obtained from a plant or a dried plant itself?

During the classes, children will be able to learn about the basic types of herbs (e.g. mint, chamomile, lavender, fennel), as well as smell some  dried herbs and oils. They will also explore the interior of an old pharmacy and learn how herbs were once stored and what tools were used to process them.

Laboratory, pharmacy, shop

During the lesson, students learn about changes that have taken place in the functioning of the pharmacy from the end of the 19th century to the present day. They follow fascinating history from the times when experiments were conducted in the pharmacy laboratory and new substances were discovered there, to the times when the manual production of drugs in the pharmacy practically disappeared.

While exploring the exhibition, participants learn about medicines’ groups (drugs for the respiratory system, painkillers, heart drugs, dermatological drugs, etc.). What was uranium glass used for, and why brown-colored bottles are widely used to store medical substances? What information can be found in a book called pharmacopea?
