– Uppsala University Library

Closed for renovation until late 2019

Uppsala University Library is one of the oldest research libraries in the Scandinavian countries. The library was founded in 1620 by the king Gustavus Adolphus, who also donated the first manuscripts and books to it. Since then the collections have grown significantly and many rare and valuable items have been added to its collections, which today constitute a rich and unique cultural heritage.

On display in the library’s permanent exhibition is the Silver Bible from the 6th century, the Carta Marina – Olaus Magnus’ map of the Scandinavian countries printed in 1539, the map of Mexico – drawn by Aloso de Santa Cruz in 1555, a music score written by Mozart and numerous Medieaval manuscripts.
