Cultural heritage and collections

Go to a museum, look at art, listen to music or sing in a choir. The door is open, and all our cultural offerings are available to students, staff, the citizens of Uppsala and visitors.

Go to a lecture!

At Uppsala University, you have the opportunity to listen to and learn from Nobel laureates, authors, politicians and many other guests and friends. Many of these lectures are open to the public, and offer new knowledge, impulses and insights for anyone interested.

Exhibitions at Carolina Rediviva

Entrance is free of charge.

The exhibition hall contains the famous Codex argenteus, as well as the earliest reasonably accurate map of the Nordic countries, the Carta Marina, and the hand-drawn map of the city of Mexico from the middle of the sixteenth century.

The library also has temporary exhibitions on the history of the Carolina Rediviva building and on the donation by Magnus Gabriel De la Gardie in 1669, when the Codex argenteus and other important works were given to the Library.
