Address: Dammgatan 15, 571 62 Bodafors

Of the river basins in Europe, the 220-km long River Emån has some of the most diverse wildlife and has been designated a river of national importance. The river system makes up a seventh of the surface area of Småland and includes 950 lakes. The springs are located close to Bodafors. Welcome to beautiful Emån’s spring! Experience the mystery and dynamics of water

The mill houses our permanent exhibition, which shows the significance of water through time and space, from the Stone Age to contemporary society. The forge was a hive of activity. The horses were shod here, and iron bands were made for wagon wheels. In the mechanical workshop, more precise work was done; machines, parts for machines, tools, furniture fittings. The nature trail is 4 km long. It starts at the museum and takes you through 12 different authentic natural habitats. Clear signs provide information about flora, trees, animals, potholes and other sites. The Emån Ecological Museum is a designated tourist destination. Come on a voyage of discovery and experiment in the museum by the water – prepare to get wet!
