At Kristineberg Marine Research Station we offer guided tours of our research activities as well as excursions with research vessel. We have some possibilities to admit and supervise pupils and students.

Due to the corona pandemic, we cannot receive school classes or other visitor groups at the moment.

Guided Tour

At Kristineberg there are activities all year, and we welcome school classes for a guided tour of the research activities conducted by permanent research staff and visiting scientists from all over the world. The tour take count of previous knowledge and interests of the visiting group. The tour can consist of seeing ongoing current research, as well as much of the special equipment used by Kristineberg scientists.

The tour lasts 1.5 hour.

It is also possible to book coffee or lunch in conjunction with the tour. We offer the tours workdays daytime, but if agreed upon groups can also visit during evenings and weekends.
