Observatories that I have visited:
4: Astronomy park
To have an observatory running there are a need of other facilities. These buildings are also in this Astronomy Park.
Uppsala old Observatory was one of the old observatories from the article "Sweden's old observatories" that I translated not long ago: Sweden's old observatories.
Seismological instrument house:
Maybe this was the meridian observatory. Today it's a seismological instrument in the building.
Workshop and staff quarters:
The most left house was the workshop, mechanical and optics I think. The three buildings to the right was the staffs living quarters.
The professor could of course not live among the workers and had his own house.
In front of professor's house is another building, they stored the instrument here when not in use.
A small store built of wood, no idea what they need to store here. In the background the instrument store building in front of professor's house.
When some of the instrument was not in use they stored them here.
Built after the astronomical observatory.
The meteorological observatory is housed in a very beautiful building.
The Musicum building was, built 1928 and I think it never had anything to do with the astronomical observatory..

Wow, that's a place I want to visit !
I found more information about the Schmidt telescope and why it has the Uppsala name. It was built 1956 in Sweden and placed at Mount Stromlo Observatory from 1957 to 1982:
