We were overwhelmed by the original wallpapers from 18th century consisting of plant illustrations many of those made by Georg Ehret. We got the rare privilege to visit Linnaeus bedroom and study the originals illustrations.(No photography inside the buildings)
On the hill north of the main building lies Linnaeus' own museum which he had built in 1769 after the big fire in Uppsala. The Museum is built of stone making it fire safe. It contains only one room.

Linnaeus Hammarby is located some 12 km outside Uppsala and one of the sites all plant lovers and illustrators should visit.
