Nature Centre

The exhibition at the Nature Centre in Kongenshus Memorial Park opened on 21 March 2005.

Visiting the Nature Centre, you can gain insight into the natural and cultural history of the heath. You will be introduced to stuffed specimens of the heath's animals, including wolf, black grouse and fox in very life-like versions.

You can sense the presence on the heath via the exhibition’s many posters, which show pictures of the families who settled on the heath.
The Nature Centre also offers the chance to touch some of the items, and it includes posters and films about the natural and cultural history of the heath.
