Gustavianum looks after a large part of Uppsala University's heritage. We are responsible for works of art, coins, archaeological finds - both Nordic and Classical - as well as for objects related to the history of science and general history.

Our collections are available as a resource for teaching and research in our two open-access stores, on Villavägen and in University House. Students, together with their teachers, and researchers with ties to universities in Sweden or abroad are welcome to work with our collections. At the stores, our curators are available to bring out the objects and can also help with any questions. The collection stores are open each weekday but check the openings hours for the collection you are interested in by clicking on the respective link in the menu to the left.

Gustavianum is responsible for curating the collections and enabling access to them – through exhibitions in the Museum, digital publications and physical research visits. We continuously digitize our collections and publish them in ALVIN. In accordance with our digitization strategy, ALVIN is our publishing tool and other databases are used for more extensive recording of in depth data.

External researchers may not develop their own digital accessibility projects for our collections, as this issue is an internal one for us as the curating institution. We would be happy to cooperate in such projects if they can be meaningfully coordinated with our own strategies.
