    Museum of Evolution: Zoology

    by marielexoteria Updated Nov 23, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Museum of Evolution is divided into 3 parts: Zoology, Paleontology and Botany but the Botany part isn't open to the public and is shown only on agreement. The Zoology part has animals from all continents and regions, from the Arctic to the Tropics. Some highlights are a vampire bat from Costa Rica, a quetzal (the Inca's sacred bird) and the extinct Tasmanian wolf.

    Practical info: open Tuesday-Thursday 1pm-4pm and Sundays 11am-3pm during September to May, open every day between 11am and 4pm during the Summer (not on the Midsummer weekend). The entrance fee is 30 SEK for adults and 10 SEK for children up to 16 years of age. The entrance covers both the Zoology and the Paleontology parts.

    Address: the Zoology part is located on Villavägen 9 within walking distance of the Zoology part, the Uppsala Castle and the Botanical Garden.
