Sooo disappointed!
May 2020
I walked to the library and was excited to find that it was open. However, the exhibition area and gift shop were closed. Very disappointed.

So much history.

The University itself has great history but they also have extraordinary exhibits of very old books and letters. Good English explanations.

Absolutely amazing!

There was SO much to see. It's the main library of the university and dates back to the mid 1800s. Lots of history to be found inside. The Silver Bible was very much on display as were many other amazing items. Too many to list but do your research before you go so you don't miss a thing!

Went to see the Silver Bible only to discover they are renovating the reading room which the copy is on display. Disappointing but did get to see a copy of it right at the entrance. Look for it in 2019.

With the renovation, nothing on display
Jul 2018 • Family
Sorry folks, but with the renovation, the Codex Argenteus (sliver bible), the map Carta marina (the first map of the Nordic countries to give details and place names), a first edition copy of Isaac Newtons Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, the Copernicana (part of the library of astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus), and other important items are not on display. Until the restoration is completed, there is no reason to visit. We delayed our departure so that we could tour and were disappointed.

Good study place

I visited before the much needed renovation. The place is huge and very Swedish. Definitely worth a visit. Has a Nice little cafe open to both students and visitors, but limited opening times.

Be back when it is renovated

Right now (october 2017), it is quite messy and you enter through the side entrance - not worth a visit yet but go there when the renovations are over.

The oldest and largest university library of Sweden
Aug 2016 • Solo
Carolina Rediviva is a beautiful building that serves as the main university library in Uppsala. It is a very good study place for the students but also a nice tourist attraction. There is a small but very interesting museum inside, home of Codex Argenteus (the Silver Book) and the Carta Marina, two objects that are worthwhile to see in person. Be careful if you want to visit within 2017 and on, as there is reconstruction work in progress.

Whilst a beautiful building there was very little here to see. A pity. There were good views from the windows in the stacks.

Never seen such a beautiful place to study or just to stay reading your book. So many different places to stay. Full of light. Huge building near the center of the city that deserves to be visited.
