The southern abode of the Lake Storsjö Monster

From the top you can gaze out over the lake on the lookout for the Lake Storsjö Monster and take in the magnificent view stretching all the way to the mountains in Norway. Hovermo Farm and Industrial Museum is a goldmine for people interested in technology, but everyone can be sure of a sense of nostalgia when looking at what has been created and collected here for four generations. In Persåsen, nature, art and handicrafts take centre stage. The exhibitions include Nordic handicrafts, art exhibitions and of course furniture and items for decorative and everyday use.
