What to do at the center
Come and greet the animals that live at the center. Our five aquariums show how the life looks under the surface of the Öresund strait, both in the shallow and deeper waters.
And did you know - we caught all the animals in conjunction with the school classes that have visited us!
The creative workshop
You can let your imagination flow in our creative workshop! Here we create ocean-inspired things - from simple fishes made out of plates to more advanced boats made out of popsicle sticks.
In our lab you can learn many exciting things about the sea. In the lab you can look at different water samples in our microscopes, do exciting and instructive experiments or test your knowledge about the sea with a challenge.
Holiday activities / Events
We love to celebrate holidays and we do this by doing some extra fun stuff together with the public. During the summer we have activities such as snorkeling and netting, and on other holidays we usually have festive events at the center.

Tip for preschools/schools outside of Malmö stad.
If your class would like to go netting it is smartest to divide the class on two nettingsessions. The group who doesn't net can visit the exhibition where we for instance have interactive parts and a creative workshop. Alternatively the group can do other own activities on the Ribersborgsstranden, grills are available right next to the center and during the summer months the Handikappbadet next to the center runs a small café.
För nuvarande går det tyvärr inte att boka studiebesök via mobilversionen, vänligen boka via en dator!

We are becoming naturum Öresund - the gateway to Öresund!
In 2019, the Marine Education Center becomes a naturum visitor centre! A naturum visitor centre is the gateway to a natural area and will create opportunity and accessibility for all to experience and come closer to nature. This is very inspiring because it means that we will be able to spread even more knowledge about the sea and why it is so important. Naturum Öresund opens up many new opportunities for both us and our visitors - expanded opening hours, a wide range of activities and guided tours as well as completely new exhibits with emphasis on our Öresund and the Global goals. The fact that the natural environment of Öresund becomes a reality is a step in the right direction for a more sea-conscious world.
To prepare for the new business, the Center will be closed for the public until summer season starts. Check out our website, Facebook and Instagram for more updates in the future.
