TypeNature center

Naturum Sommen is a visitor center and natural history museum located in Torpön Island in Lake Sommen in the South Swedish highlands. The building is modelled after a traditional boathouse.[1] The idea of a naturum museum was first conceived in 1996 and the museum was inaugurated in 2002.[2] From the beginning, the museum has been supported by the local history society of Torpön (Swedish: Torpöns hembygsförening).[2] In late 2013 Naturum Sommen closed as the local history society of Torpön and the Sommen Foundation (Swedish: Stiftelsen Sommen) were not able to continue its support, however it opened again in 2014.[3][4][5]

Since 2017, the Ydre municipality heads the work in Sommen Naturum.[2]
