The museum has permanent exhibitions which describe the history of the city of Uppsala and the province of Uppland over a period of 5,000 years. There are also topical exhibitions on a range of subjects, with both an Uppland focus and a global perspective. Much of our programme activities take place here, with demonstrations, lectures and other activities for children and adults alike.

In summer, you can also relax in our beautiful courtyard.
