  • Have visited the Gustavianum X number of times. Most of the anatomical theatre. It used to be a separate part adjacent to the theater, but it was now removed. Really sad! It was one of the Museum's highlights.

  • To some extent, unique museum-there are only 3 similar in Europe. Go and see! Interesting and accessible, easy to imagine activities even if it was limited ... Anatomical Theatre-wonderful!

  • I was in a guided visit and it was amazing to hear that it is actually the oldest building of Uppsala University. There are many things about important people that studied in the University through it...  read more »
  • 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.
  • A bit small. Expected a larger museum for such an old university.
  • Well worth a visit.
  • Small, walked the whole building in under a minute. 1st floor bathrooms and gift shop. 2nd floor Egyptian and local university works. 3rd floor anatomical theater and very small collection of its finding a lot of unused space fills the rest of that floor. 4th floor is for the Vikings with no real information in history just some cremation and boat burial artifacts.
  • Offers quite a lot things to see.
