Safety measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic

The Linnaean Gardens of Uppsala follow the national restrictions applied to museums and galleries.  We do as much as we can to offer you a safe visit. At the same time we do our best to contribute to a slower spreading of infection to facilitate for our healthcare services to help those most in need – people from risk groups, the elderly, and people with underlying health problems. Our ambition is to operate as usual as soon as the national and regional restictions allow that.

At the moment the Tropical Greenhouse is closed.
