Spotting your favourite flowers in the garden, then finding out all about Carl Linnaeus and his family in the museum and finally a look around the shop for a gift to remember the day!

Garden kept in good order. It is quite a small garden and we took the guided tour which was very interesting. We also walked around the house using the audio guide which was excellent.

Visiting the Linneas Museum was the highlight of my visit to Uppsala. We saw the Linneaus garden, Linneas's house, and the Botanical garden. The docent that we met was obviously a Linnaeus fan and willing to answer any question about Linneas, his classification system and...More

We enjoyed seeing this beautiful tidy garden and learning about Linnaeus in his former home. Early May is probably too early to visit if you want to see lots of plants but still worth a visit.

Amazing place with a lot of colour in the summer. Not open in winter. I recommend 100% this place and going to linnaeus hammerby either

It is three parts to the gardens, it is the Botanical garden, the Linnaeus garden and the museum. It is well worth a stroll at any point of the year.

Visitors on a weekend break will be dissappointed to find this attraction closed on a Monday so plan your visit day accordingly . We were able to see some of the garden through the metal gates but most is hidden by high wooden fences .

The walk around the garden is peaceful, and the existing cafe close by is a great stop for a "fika". I must say, if you want a relaxing strall, it is a great garden for doing so.

Although a historical place the entry to the Garden was little bit pricey. The Garden was ok but we were told you can find more variety in the new botanical garden named after the same professor. The price includes the visit to the Linnaeus Historical...More
