The traditional Hedebo embroidery, agriculture and the First World War. Through clothing, embroidery, furniture and other objects the museum gives you a chronological insight into the area's development. Greve Museum is housed in a real, four-winged Hedebo farm from 1826 and the museum building itself is a part of the story that is shown in the old rooms. The quadrangular courtyard which Greve Museum is housed in, was originally located in Greve Village, but is was moved outside the village to the fields where it is today in the 1800s, when the peasants were freehold. The farm has a big, beautiful country garden, herbaceous perennials and large fruit trees. Today, there are no longer horses and sheep at the old Hedebo farm. The outbuildings, farmhouse, carriage house, barn, groom chamber and sheep and chicken coop stores exhibitions, Greve Local History Archive, activity workshops, a library, cafe and shop.
