Linnaeus Garden and Museum
The Linnaeus Garden was founded in 1655 as the first botanical garden in Sweden. It wasn't until the 18th century that Carl Linnaeus (also known as Carolus Linnaeus or Carl von Linne), a prominent Swedish botanist zoologist, physician, and father of modern taxonomy and ecology, redesigned the garden and began cultivating plants under his own system. It now contains roughly 1,300 species, and is maintained by Uppsala University. Within the garden is the Linnaeus museum, which was the scientist's home for 35 years.
