This year's summer exhibition 2016
Sara Elisabeth Linnaeus lived to be 90 years old: an impressive age at a time when contagious diseases such as Uppsala Fever and other illnesses were rampant. This year is the 300th anniversary of her birth.
This year’s temporary exhibition gives a few glimpses of Sara, her everyday life and the pivotal role she plays in one of Sweden’s most important academic households.
The Linnaeus Museum is in what was once Carl Linnaeus’
home, beautifully located in the Linnaeus Garden in Uppsala. Objects
and portraits tell of Linnaeus’ life and times, both in
private and as a scientist.
