The Main House

Main House, Linnaeus' Hammarby, Uppsala univeristy

The main house at Hammarby was commissioned by Linnaeus and completed in 1762. Here portraits of Linnaeus’ family, friends and pets and, above all, of Linnaeus himself can now be seen. There are also numerous objects that belonged to the Linnaeus family, ranging from a lemon squeezer to tablecloths and clothes. Linnaeus’ study and bedroom are decorated with hundreds of beautiful prints of flowers which he had pasted to the walls instead of wallpaper.
