The elk / The moose

The elk is the largest animal in the Swedish forest. It is easy to recognize because of its size and its distinctive appearance. The large ears, muzzle, and the rich beard together with the characteristic hump on its back makes it difficult to confuse with other animals. In the museum's interactive exhibition you can get to know the elk and all of his senses. With interactive displays the information will come to life and you are guided by educational texts and images. Together with your own active exercises you will learn about the King of the Forest.

Flora & Fauna

In addition to the elk, you can in the museum exhibition find information about the mountain wildlife. Learn about red deer, roe deer, beaver and fox. See the wolf in the wolf-trap and beavers working by their hut. Encounter the sea eagle with its powerful wings and the osprey with its fresh caught perch! In the museum you will find fifty or so animals. Besides information about the wildlife you will also find information about the mountain nature reserve and vegetation.

The Royal Hunt

Hunting rights at Halleberg and Hunneberg have been owned by the royal family since 1351 when it was appointed as a Royal park. The annual traditional royal hunt was however first introduced by King Oscar II in 1885. Still to this day the mountains are host to the royal hunt. The museum's exhibition depicts these hunts with unique photos from the early hunts till todays modern hunt with King Carl XVI Gustaf. In the exhibition you can meet King Gustav V on his favorite hunting site and you can also yourself participate in the royal hunt with the hunting simulator.
