Visitor Center

Naturum Söderåsen is a visitor centre located at Entré Skäralid - the entrance to Söderåsens national park. Here you will get inspiration and nature guidance to get out into nature. You will meet knowledgeable staff who can help you with your questions about the national park, the trails, and about its nature.

About the activity

Naturum functions as a gateway to nature. In the exhibition about the national park, you will find out more about Söderåsen's unique animals, plants, geology, and cultural history. In the experience room, you will find many activities such as a video microscope, craft table, life in the stump, and an interactive wall. Our permanent exhibition is currently being rebuilt and will reopen in the summer of 2024.
