Linnaeus’ Hammarby is one of the most authentically preserved estates from the 1700s. The estate was purchased as a summer residence by the Prince of Botanists himself in 1758 and served as an escape from the unhealthy environment of Uppsala.
The household items, clothes and art tell us more about Carl Linnaeus’ private life and his scientific achievements. A permanent exhibit reflects on the family’s life on the farm. The lush park is home to many of the plants grown by Linnaeus himself and the surrounding cultural reserve has several nature and culture trails.
