1 review
Carl Linnaeus (Carl von Linné, 1707–1778) is one of the world’s best-known scientists. Linnaeus’ was a multi talented scientist that could call himself physician, botanist, geologist, zoologist and philosopher. He travelled, he observed, recorded, tested, analysed and published a large variety of manuscripts on many different topics. He sought a universal classification of all creation, animal, vegetable and mineral. It is called taxonomy: a classification system for the natural world to for the naming of species and order them according to their characteristics and relationships with one another. He spent more than 50 years in Uppsala and we will walk in his footsteps and see and experience some of the things and sights he saw some 300 years ago. Come and see some of the unique legacy he left behind and learn more about him and his contribution to our lives today!

We came here when visiting friends in Uppsala. It gives a good overview of the town's history, although not very much is in English. Worth a visit for an hour or so.

The museum is okay, but it could be better organized (some parts as for example the exhibition on Roma and their problems are not in English at all). The floor dedicated to knitting skills is interesting (you can even see Amundsen’s hat from the North Pole expedition). The entrance is free.

Went to visit this museum as it was recommended and free entry. The first floor had a quaint little play area for children which was great on a rainy day. The actual museum area was a huge disappointment. Everything was explained only in swedish no attempt whatsoever to cater for tourists/foreigners. The displays were minimal and nothing really self explanatory. There was no clear trajectory through the displays and it really seemed like not much effort was put to set it up. No staff in the display areas. There's a small cafe at the entrance with basic snacks. The staff wasn't proactive in welcoming visitors either. Luckily there was no entry fee so nothing was lost by visiting this place. The area however was quite nice with a pond and beautiful trees. I recommend visiting the neighbourhood more than the museum it self

Very nice little museum with lots of nostalgic interiours full of every-day things you may remember from your childhood. Interesting Ingmar Bergman exhibits i.a. from his famous film Fanny & Alexander at the time of our visit. Industry history and old age artefacts also exhibited.

The location is great, at the spillway and small “rapids”. A charming stone bridge next to the edifice spans the river and there is a landing to sit and enjoy the sun, even on a brisk day, upstream on the opposite bank. You encounter all this before you enter and are informed there is no admission charge to this museum. Fascinating temporary exhibits are found on the first two levels. The top floor is a permanent, fascinating exhibit about the history of Uppsala. Don’t overlook the excellent English language brochures found at the beginning of every exhibit; all display signs are only in Swedish.
