  • 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.
