This is worth a visit as they have exhibits on so many different things. From ancient Egypt to the vikings to old scientific instruments. They also have an old theatre where the medical students watched dissections which was really interesting and something you don't see...More

I thoroughly enjoyed this museum! Seeing how the Uppsala university evolved and the professors that shaped it was eye opening. The Viking exhibit, operation theatre and the Egyptian exhibit rounded out the information to make it very enjoyable.

A beautiful house with a remarkable antique cabinet containing all of the worlds interesting things from that era. The anatomical theatre is also a must, history and science in one!

A place mainly celebrating Swedish achievements in science, especially biology. Decent activity during the yearly Culture Night during which entrance is free for everyone. Located opposite the cathedral.

An Egyptology display with a mummified crocodile; two galleries of the university's history, including a nice display of nineteenth century scientific equipment. Be sure and take the brief (30-40 min) guided tour for more insights.

Went to Gustavianum without any big expectations, but we were lucky to arrive when a free guided tour started. Lots of fascinating stories, at least if you are interested in Swedish university and religious history. I think the museum is very nice as is, but...More

For the entrance fee of 50 SEK and within a walkable distance from the central station, the Gustavianum Uppsala University Museum is a must see in Uppsala. Great ancient Egyptian and Viking exhibits, as well as a most impressive anatomical theater from the 1600s.
