Havana.- The Pharmaceutical Museum of Matanzas, the only one of its kind in Cuba, has benefited from a restoration project.
The remodeling plan of the 19th-century French apothecary consisted of painting the doors and remodeling furniture, ceilings and walls of the institution, which keeps an important collection.
Cracks were removed from the stonework, so that the building can preserve its original architectural components.
In this way, the woodworks in the hallway have been varnished, as well as the furniture in the apothecary, while works in warehouse number two are still pending.
The center protects hundreds of thousands of glass and paper labels used to label medicines and a collection of decorative art consisting of pharmaceutical containers made of different materials such as porcelain, glass, ceramics and opaline.
