Gamla Uppsala museum (Old Uppsala museum)

The museum is located by one of Sweden’s most impressive ancient sites; the Royal Mounds. Built in the 6th century A.D., the mounds are thought to be the burial monuments of Uppsala’s ruling elite during the late Iron Age. The museum tells the story of the site and in the exhibitions you will find archaeological artefacts as well as interactive elements.
