The place is very interesting specially that section related to a viking tomb, burial. There is also a section where you can see learn about science and some scientifics - like some women who were unknown for me, but meant a lot for science.

Go up to the ”medical theater” in the top dome and imagine watching an autopsy. See the wonderful war treasure, the cabinet so filled with treasures it boggles the mind. This museum is uniqie in the world! Well worth the trip to Uppsala!
