Exhibitions in the Linnaean Gardens

In our permanent exhibitions you can learn more about Carl Linnaeus and his science, and about family life at Hammarby, in the garden and in the town.

During the summers we arrange art exhibitions outdoors and indoors in The Linnaeus Garden, at Linnaeus' Hammarby, and in The Botanical Garden.

You can search our plant data base of the plants grown in the Botanical Garden, and learn more about some of the plants that remain at Linnaeus’ Hammarby since the 18th century. In the articles about ’plant of the week’ you can discover more about many of the plants of the Botanical Garden.
