The History of Pharmacology in Puerto Rico

One of the small, pocket attractions in Old San Juan is this fascinating little museum. Health in the tropical region of the Caribbean was, of course, an important aspect for the Spanish colonists in Puerto Rico, and their concerns were met by the few physicians and pharmacists in the colony.

The exhibitions will give you an idea of how medicine in the 18th and 19th centuries was practiced, particularly in the Caribbean. This gem of a museum is well worth a visit.
