Description

The Norwegian Museum of Horticulture enjoys a beautiful setting in the Dømmesmoen park, and offers three fascinating exhibitions on important aspects of Grimstad's horticultural and natural history. In the wine exhibition, the production of Fuhr's renowned wines can be explored. "Bees and flowers - the ecological interaction" is an in-depth display of the importance of bees in our food chain.  The third exhibition, "In jar, glass, can and bottle: Cultivation, preservation and marketing of horticultural products", is a wonderful retrospective glance at Grimstad's vast food preservation industry. The museum has a café serving the very best waffles in town, and its shop offers a large selection of books as well as essential items for gardening enthusiasts and other visitors. A gardening library is also available and open to the public.
