How does a magic lantern work?  Can 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.
