When it was established in 1882, the Triolet Pharmacy was among the most prestigious in the city. Founded by Dr. Ernesto Triolet and Dr. Juan Figuero, it was a pharmacy till 1964. After its nationalization, it opened its doors in the same year as the Pharmaceutical Museum (Museo Farmaceutico Matanzas), the first of its kind in Latin America. Time seems to stand still at this museum where everything is kept intact the way it was. Get intrigued by the vintage and original displays such as the colored porcelain jars, pharmaceutical instruments, actual stacks, laboratory items, polychrome glass jars and books.
