What is a World Heritage site?


The aim of our exhibitions is to inspire you to visit the amazing scenery of the High Coast district. “Impressions”, our first permanent exhibition, describes how the land uplift occurred and the impressions that the sea has left on the beach as the land has risen.

It was in the High Coast area that the phenomenon of isostatic land uplift was first discovered. In the exhibition you can also read about the researchers that made the discovery.

Our second permanent exhibition, Forest, Sea and Mountain, describes Skuleskogen National Park and its unique natural heritage, as well as the sea, which has been designated by HELCOM as a special marine area, and Skuleberget, where we are located and which has been a landmark since prehistoric times.

This year’s temporary exhibition called “Taiga – the forest marked by fire” tell you about the good the fire can do for biodiversity in a forest. We have become better at putting out fires so that many spicies that rely on burned forests are now threatened. That is why we burn the fires under controlled conditions.
