The Pharmacy Museum in Porto celebrates Agatha Christie, probably the world's most famous mystery writer
16-09-2020
The Pharmacy Museum in Porto celebrates one century of Agatha Christie's debut as a mystery writer and 130 years of her birth, on 17th September, with two sessions at 4.15pm and 5pm. 

Agatha Christie was an English detective novelist and playwright, who wrote circa 75 novels, including 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections. She is also considered one of the best-selling novelists of all time, with film adaptations of her popular novels of Poirot or Miss Marple.

The main objective is to lead participants into finding the essential elements of Christie's mystery stories, whilst linking the genre to "the Pharmacy and the Middle East's histories, namely Mesopotamia and Egypt, Europe and Central America".

In that sense, the museum will resort to publications such as Murder in Mesopotamia, Death on the Nile, A Caribbean Mystery, Appointment with Death, and They Came to Baghdad to unravel "pieces of histories of civilizations and health that embed its unique collection".

 The thematic tour is limited to ten participants per session and tickets cost 4€ (student and senior) and 6€ (regular ticket).
