Sea, Limestone, Soil and the Market Town
Presented by Museum Østjylland
At Museum Østjylland in Grenaa you will experience a completely renovated cultural history museum with brand new exhibits. The exhibitions tell the history of the northern part of Djursland over the past 10,000 years. It is the exciting story of life on the edge of the ocean, with its ever-present and everchanging history of human interaction with this very special place of nature and natural resources. It is also the story of the people who have ancient roots in this unique part of Denmark.
At the exhibition visitors can explore the Nordic Pompeii, which disappeared in a sand drift some 2,600 years ago. They can find Stone Age hunters who used bearskin and bear skulls in their religious rituals, and explore the town of Grenaa as the home of a number of very large industrial companies. The newly renovated Museum Østjylland and its exhibition setting is one of the largest historical initiatives in Aarhus 2017.
