The Ekenäs Nature Centre provides fascinating information on the changing nature of the Baltic Sea and western Uusimaa archipelago. The exhibition for children provides visitors with the opportunity to listen to underwater sounds, admire a fisherman's hut, search for invasive species in a dry aquarium and learn about life in wetlands. The cosy Nature Centre is housed in a building erected in the 1840s.
