Tycho Brahe Museum. Rydeback, Sweden

Tycho Brahe was a famous Danish nobleman, known for his precise astronomical and planetary observations in the 16th century. He was given Hven as a gift from the king of Denmark to conduct his astronomical research. On the island he built a palace, called Uraniborgslot, dedicated to Urania, the Greek goddess of astronomy. Today the palace is gone, however there is a small museum in the church and you book a 15-minute tour to the observatory across the street. The museum also houses a small Renaissance garden.
