Booking a school activity

Let our education officers take your school class or preschool group on a guided tour of our gardens and glasshouses, our historic environments, or around Linnaeus’s home and gardens. You can also book an activity session for your school in the Botanical Garden, Linnaeus Garden, Linnaeus Mueum or at Linnaeus’ Hammarby.

A guided tour takes about 45 minutes. To get the most out of the tour the group should not be larger than 20 students. For planting and other activities, the group size should not exceed 12 children.

Visits to the Linnaeus Museum and to the Botanical Garden may be booked year round.
