​naturum is a visitor centre to receive people who visit natural or cultural environments which are protected or otherwise worth experiencing. This Swedish facility was established in 1973, when the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) started a pilot project at three locations based on American and British models. Today there are more than 30 naturum in Sweden.

naturum Gotland is located at Vamlingbo Prästgård, south of Burgsvik on the southern part of the island. You will find a permanent exhibition here about Gotlands geology, nature, and cultural history, as well as knowledgeable personnel who will help you with your questions and provide tips on what is worth seeing at the moment, and how to find your way around the island. naturum also has temporary exhibitions, which presently are ”sustainable consumption” created by Terra Nova skolan on Gotland.

​We offer a variety of guided tours. Here is our present daily program 2018:
