What to do at the visitor centre
We keep to the typical Swedish tradition of taking our shoes off when indoors. The floor is warm, and the practice is in keeping with the relaxed atmosphere in naturum. Besides, it lowers the sound level. You may eat your picnic inside and we always have some coffee or tea for the visitors, but we have no food facilities.
In naturum there is an exhibition that explains the development of the mire and the area during the last 14 000 years.
You can always call and book a guided showing in naturum. In naturum Store Mosse you will find information about Store Mosse National Park, and other National Parks in Sweden and about the nature reserves in the County of Jönköping.
At the panoramic window facing Lake Kävsjön, you have a front row seat to follow the bird life. Through the telescopes available in naturum, you can experience the birds at close range.
Activities for old and young
Have a look at the mounted brown bear shot near the park in the year 2000. Study skeletons. Play a parlour game. Or settle down in an comfortable armchair at our reference library and read for a while in front of the fire.
There are fire places for grilling and tables and chairs between naturum and the bird observation tower. In wintertime there are also ski tracks, provided there is sufficient snow.
