  • Especially go for the sake of this Museum in the town of Uppsala. But if you don't miss something here. Inexpensive Museum, limited jeksponstami, but is there a place where medical students showed an autopsy, there is a Hall with variable in 1920-ies from Egypt of the pyramids.

  • The House is beautiful from the outside and don't make much fuss of itself-but inside hides the historic treasures worth seeing! Mummies, swords, Linnaeus's disciples herbarium, objects from the urgrävda Viking graves, and much more. The exhibits are small, but fascinating and because the Museum is small, it is also more transparent. Good featured. And there is of course the anatomical theatre. Aside from its macabre past, it is in some ways a historically interesting and beautiful place. No adventure land for young children, but for some curious child, there is plenty to look at! Cheap entrance-very affordable.

  • Very cool museum! This place has an eclectic collection of artifacts spanning ancient Egypt, the Viking Age in Scandanavia, and many other curiosities. The centerpiece is the Anatomical Theatre on the top floor.
  • Showcases nicely the history of the Uppsala University. The collection has many historical artifacts in a nice environment. Easy to find as it is just next to the large church.
  • Interesting collection, part of it also with English explanation. Entrance fee reasonable.
  • A bit small. Expected a larger museum for such an old university.
