Geocache Description:


FIN: Apteekkimuseo ja Qwenselin talo

Qwenselin talo on Turun vanhin omavaraistalouden ajalta säilynyt porvaristalo. Talo rakennettiin Pietari Brahen 1652 laadittamassa asemakaavassa aatelistolle varatulle alueelle noin vuonna 1700. Myöhemmin rakennettuun kauppasiipeen on sisustettu 1800-luvun apteekki, johon kuuluu materiaali- ja yrttihuone, kaksi laboratoriota ja offisiini. Offisiinissa on Suomen vanhin säilynyt apteekkisisustus.

Näyttelysiivessä sijaitsee Åke Lydmanin apteekkiastioiden kokoelma, 1920-luvun lääketutkimuslaboratorio ja farmasiahistorian näyttely. Perusnäyttelyiden lisäksi museossa on vuosittain vaihtuvia pienoisnäyttelyitä ja ohjelmatoimintaa.

Lasten apteekissa, sisäpihalla ja luonnossa opiskellaan lääkeyrttejä "apteekkarin" ohjauksessa. Aito apteekkikaapisto on peräisin Uudenkaarlepyyn apteekista.

Pakaritupasiiven pohjoispäässä sijaitsevat entiset talli-, lantala- ja käymälätilat sekä navetta. Linnankadun (ent. Kuningattarenkadun) varrella oli Pippingien valistusajan puutarha omenapuineen ja kasvilavoineen. Sisäpihalla on myös miellyttävä vanha kahvila.

Kivitalo kätköltä koilliseen on Turun kaupungintalo.

ENG: The Pharmacy Museum and The Qwensel House

The Qwensel House is the oldest bourgeois housing from the autarchic times that has survived in its entirety. The house was built approximately in the year 1700 to an area that was reserved for the nobility in the city plan put up by Peter Brahe. A pharmacy from the 17th century has been furnished in the shop wing of the building. The pharmacy has a material room and a herb room, two laboratories and an office. The office has the oldest survived pharmacy interior in Finland.

The exhibition wing of the building has Åke Lydman's collection of pharmacy utensils on display. There is also a pharmaceutical research laboratory and pharmacy history exhibition in the wing. In addition to the main exhibitions, there are also varying smaller exhibitions and programmes held at the museum every year.

The use of pharmaceutical herbs can be studied with the lead of an "apothecary" at the Children's Pharmacy, the inner courtyard and outdoors. The authentic pharmacy cabinet is from the Uusikaarlepyy Pharmacy.

The former stable, toilet and barn are located at the northern end of the Pakaritupa wing of the building. The Pipping family used to have a garden with apple trees and plants along the Linnankatu Street (formerly Kuningattarenkatu Street). There is a nice cafe in the courtyard.

Big stone building to NE from the cache is the Turku city hall.
