Did any of you have ever visited the Technisches museum in Vienna?

 They have a “Alchemy & Pharmacy” collection, and I was wondering if there’s anything else of interest beside apothecary jars.

I haven't been there, but there certainly used to be an 'Alchemist's Kitchen' there back in the 90s. It was moved up to Burg Rabenstein for an exhibition in 2001 and I haven't heard anything more about it since:

There's an article about it in this book (but only available in German):

Mechthild Dubbi: Die Alchemistenküche des Technischen
Museums Wien. In: Odo Burböck u. a., Das kleine
Alchemistenbuch, Wien 2001.

Nice motorcycles though
:)

I have been looking to buy a copy of  Odo Burböck u. a., Das kleine
Alchemistenbuch
, Wien 2001, without any success.

Perhaps this publication may have been a catalogue associated with the exhibition
Alchemie der Traum vom Gold at Burg Rabenstein in May-October 2001.

Must be a thin booklet with no ISBN. Usual searches draw a blank.

Perhaps the Library of the Technical Museum could help:

bibliothek@tmw.at

or Mechthild Dubbi, who contributed to the book:

mechthild.dubbi@tmw.at

or Burg Rabenstein exhibition centre:

ausstellungszentrum@burg-rabenstein.at
