Pre-school activities in The Linnaean Gardens

In the Botanical Garden, the Linnaeus Garden and Linnaeus' Hammarby – we offer lessons for all ages. We aim to arouse curiosity about nature and to make children understand the relationship between organisms.

In our gardens children are welcome to dance, plant, create and learn!
