Naturum Höga Kusten
Naturum Höga Kusten was inaugurated on June 21, 2007. Here is an exciting and colorful exhibition on how the World Heritage High Coast has been shaped by the geological processes that have been going on in the area since the last ice age melted. In the exhibition you will learn more about the unique coast and the land abolition. Explore the exhibition yourself or join a guided tour with one of nature’s expert guides.
 
Naturum is located at the foot of the mighty Skuleberget. The highest coastline here is at 286 meters above the current sea level, just below the top of Skuleberget. Naturum’s architecture is inspired by the landward force and the contrast between mountains and sea, ice and rocks.
 
Current information can be found on the website www.naturumhogakusten.se.
