Commented presentation of the Royal Apothecary

  • Tours


Saturdays August 27 and September 10 at 3:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Rediscover the Royal Apothecary! After a complete restoration, the collection of earthenware pots decorated with blue patterns, glass jars and hand-decorated wooden medicinal plant boxes awaits you in the Villa Eugénie Désoyer. Most of the objects presented date from the 17th and 18th centuries. And these rare witnesses of medicine under Louis XIV come from two royal hospitals founded in Saint-Germain-en-Laye in the 17th century: the General Hospital and the Charité Hospital.

The Tourist Office offers you a 15-minute commented presentation. Come admire this royal treasure!
