  • Terranova

    Museokatu 3, Vaasa

    Terranova is the name of the museum’s permanent natural science exhibition. Terranova is Latin for ‘new land’. In the Kvarken region the ´new´ land rises from the sea at a rate of 9 mm per year. Terranova was opened in 2002 in cooperation with the Ostrobothnian Museum, the Finnish Forest and Park Service Metsähallitus and the Ostrobothnia Australis Association.

    Terranova presents nature in the Kvarken and Vaasa region from the Ice Age until the present day. Visitors can wonder at the land uplift phenomenon and its consequences, admire the beautiful Kvarken Archipelago and its fauna with all their senses. They can pat a ringed seal or touch rock that is billions of years old, dive beneath the surface in a virtual aquarium and watch nature films in the auditorium.

    Terranova is also privileged to present a unique natural heritage site: The Kvarken Archipelago was entered in UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2006 – the only natural site in Finland to be included so far. Together with the High Coast of Sweden, it forms a natural heritage site. The area was given the status of world heritage because post-glacial rebound is more visible here than anywhere else in the world. More information about the High Coast and the Kvarken Archipelago World Heritage is available at www.merenkurkku.fi and www.naturumhogakusten.se.
