For schools

How does a magic lantern work? Does Egyptian mummies live after death? These and many other questions are answered at Gustavianum.

With its rich diversity of collections, Gustavianum is a popular destination for schools and pre-schools. Here, Uppsala University displays some of its historical collections that tell us about exciting discoveries and experiments.

With over 10 000 objects in the building, it is possible to find out about Ancient Egyptian counting and writing, medieval school notes, medical dissections in the Anatomical Theatre, the invention of the Celsius thermometer, and much more.

All group visits by preschools and schools must be booked in advance, regardless of whether you are booking a museum guide or activity, or leading the visit yourself.

There is no possibility to buy food at the museum. The nearest café is the Cathedral café at the cathedral or the Market Hall. Packed lunches may not be eaten in the museum.
