Located by the beautiful park at Dømmesmoen.
The Norwegian Museum of Horticulture enjoys a beautiful setting in the Dømmesmoen park, and is the only museum of its kind in Norway.
The museum offers three fascinating exhibitions on important aspects of Grimstad's horticultural and natural history. In the wine exhibition «A rhubarb and redcurrant adventure», the production of Fuhr's renowned wines can be explored. The exhibition «Bees and flowers» is an in-depth display of the importance of bees in our food chain. The third exhibition, «In jar, can and bottle», 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.
The Welcome Centre for Raet National Park is also located at the Norwegian Museum of Horticulture. Here you will find information about why the Raet National Park has been named after a geological phenomenon and not after a geographical name.
