The most interesting exhibition showing some of Carl von Linne's original work. A very lovely building with historic architecture. Such a nice place to visit for a smaller and quicker exhibition when in Uppsala. 1.5hrs is enough for this siting.

The library is a nice location to relax and to work. The exhibition is very interesting and well constructed. Enjoy the view from the library to the castle and down to the city.

No need to register as a library guest; just walk into the exhibit galleries to the right of the entrance. The gift shop in the lobby is especially nice with excellent note cards.
