This is one of the lesser known museums of Uppsala, partly because it's not in the center of town. But if you have seen the statue outside the train station you may like to visit the sculptures home..... more

I've been there plenty of times now, and I always loved it. The last time was yesterday, with my baby son for the children's tour. The people working there are super friendly. While we waited for the tour to start, I had fika while the super nice women working at the front desk "talked" to my son. The tour was nice, thank you, Maria!
To move around in the artist's house, atelier and see so many of the works up close is a treat. Great staff adds to the experience and for an art museum it's very family friendly.
