    Gustavianum is opposite the Cathedral is being used as the main building of the Uppsala University for about 200 years, but is now becoming a museum. The Department established seat of stepped steep gradient is a anatomical Theatre (Anatomy lecture room) so you can see many people demonstrate the anatomical theater-like. It can accommodate a crowd of 200 people. Have a great baroque exhibition on the history of Uppsala University, from the city of Augsburg of Germany was awarded Cabinet. During the Cabinet more than 1000 ones contained valuable goods. Viking exhibition and exhibition of Egypt (missed it...) also think and equipped instead of admission 50 SEK, is impressive.

  • We were lucky to get a tour of the museum in english. They have unique items placed here from Egypt. The memories and collectibles from University professors is nice and informative. The anatomical theatre was different too!! Right in front of the Domkyrkan and easy to miss as the building looks boring from outside, but don't miss the globe on the top of the building! There is an entry ticket.
  • There oldest building left of the original University in Sweden. Adult admission is 50 SEK. It is worth the price of admission. They have unique exhibits including lecture notes from s student written in the 15th Century. A large display if Egyptian artifacts. A Viking display. Displays on medicine, energy, and geology. The autopsy/anatomy room is a unique experience.
  • Oldest remaining university building in Uppsala. Houses the museum of Uppsala University history as well as temporary exhibitions based on finds by Uppsala University archeology. A must see is the anatomical theatre at the top. Make sure to catch one of the guided tours (Sundays at the time of writing) to learn more!
  • Guided visiting with the payment include. 40 SEK students. Not for free anymore.
