The Linnaeus Garden and the Linnaeus Museum

For guided tours of the Linnaeus Garden you can choose whether to visit only the garden, only the museum or both attractions. The Linnaeus Museum has a maximum capacity of 40 people, of which no more than 15 people may be on the upper floor at any one time. For larger groups we therefore recommend a combined tour of the museum and garden.

A tour takes about one hour and are always held by our staff or guides authorised by The Linnaean Gardens of Uppsala. 

It is essential that groups of more than 10 people book their visit to the garden and/or the museum in advance.

Group visits to the Linnaeus Museum

  • May–September: You can only book group visits outside normal opening times, i.e. before 11:00 or after 16:30.
  • October–April: The museum is open to pre-booked groups only, any time of the day.

You can also book visits to Linnaeus' Hammarby (open May – September) and the Botanical Garden (open throughout the year) through our booking service.
