When the Swedish Linnaeus Society was founded in 1917, one of the main objectives was to restore the entire botanical garden to the shape it had in Linnaeus’ days. The next step would be to turn the professor’s residence into a permanent museum, where furniture, household goods and other items connected to Linnaeus could be exhibited. The project was gradually carried out in the following years, and the Linnaeus Museum was inaugurated in May 1937. The restoration of Linnaeus’ house and the construction of the museum during the 1930s is of considerable interest. The process took place in a time when Swedish 18th century architecture was subject to revaluation, and the restoration and furnishing of Linnaeus’ house can be analyzed from a historiographical point of view. Other significant aspects are contemporary theories of national heritage and museology.
