Upplandsmuseet temporarily closed for visitors
On Friday, March 13, Upplandsmuseet will temporarily close for visitors. The reason for this closure is a recommendation from the Public Health Agency of Sweden to limit the number of public gatherings in order to prevent the further spread of coronavirus.
Upplandsmuseet is among Uppsala’s most visited establishments, and among one of Sweden’s most visited regional museums. This means that our staff welcomes more than 500 visitors daily.
Upplandsmuseet values our visitors’ health, as well as the working environment of our staff, and we will comply with guidelines set by the responsible authorities regarding the coronavirus.
After the government decision to curtail the number of public gatherings, the Upplandsmuseet foundation have taken the decision to suspend its public activities until further notice.
Upplandsmuseet will remain closed until the Public Health Agency of Sweden gives the all-clear. The museum’s website - upplandmuseet.se - will be updated regularly, posting the latest information about the closure and when the museum will be reopened.
