The Museum of Evolution

The Museum of Evolution protects and displays Uppsala University's natural history collections - fossils, minerals, animals, and plants. We have more than 5 million specimens in our collections. The material is available not only to researchers who come from near and far, but also to all our visitors for inspiration and education.

Museum of Evolution Palaeontology and Mineralogy: Fossils and minerals tell the history of Earth and life. We have the largest collection of genuine dinosaur skeletons in Scandinavia.
