The building sits on stilts in the water, and was the first naturum designed and built in Sweden. It was inaugurated in 1986, to tell visitors about the lake. The County Administrative Board of Västra Götaland has been operating the naturum here since 2002. We work here to spread knowledge about nature and inspire people to get to out into the nature.
Other naturums can be found all around Sweden. In total, there are a bit more than thirty spread around the country. What is common to all naturums is that you can participate in exciting activities and explore beautiful and interesting exhibitions.
In the southern part of Lake Hornborga you will also find the Trandansen Info Centre. The County Administrative Board of Västra Götaland manages both the Naturum Hornborgasjön and the info centre. During the spring crane season, the visitor activities are run in close cooperation with Visit Hornborga. Visit is a joint tourist organisation consisting of the municipalities of Skara, Falköping and Skövde.
