“Nothing special”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

I went in and the first thing they told me is "look, we are like Cambridge, lots of history, lots of science, etc." I looked around and, yes, it's an OK little museum, but definitely not like Cambridge.

“A must-see in Uppsala”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Although modest in size, this museum is loaded with fascinating objects. Both Linnaeus and Celsius did their important work at Uppsala University, and you will find some of their papers here. There is also a small viking exhibit that focuses on excavations near the city.

“Interesting”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Not a big museum which has the advantage of being asily digestible. Of particular note is the demonstration operating theatre; the viking exhibition is also informa\tive and there is a good section on Egyptology. The history of the University is well described as are the profiles of the numerous Nobel prize winners that haiol from here.
