Meteoria Söderfjärden – a visitor centre
The Meteoria is managed by Sundom bygdeförening (voluntary association of the village), in cooperation with the Astronomical Society of Vaasa Andromeda, which operates and is in charge of the observatory.
A visitor centre in a unique, very old impact crater: one of the best preserved out of about 190 known craters on Earth.
Experience the violent impact in a simulation in the exhibition, which covers a long history of at least 520 million years.
Walk in a model of the solar system and in an informative crater model with a falling asteroid.
See and listen to the birds in their paradise and inhale the country air of this fertile agricultural area – just 10 km south of the city of Vaasa. Suitable for all ages.
