From ancient times to present day
Furesø Museums and the Danish Immigration Museum shows the story of the two cities Farum and Værløse and the urban development from ancient times to present day, the people who have lived in the area and about the forest and nature surrounding it. But it is also the story about the people who have come to Denmark to live, their hopes and dreams for a better life and how the country has received them.
A new permanent exhibition tells the story of the original village society, the later suburbs and the recent so called Farum–affair. The grounds of Mosegaarden contain a smithy, an old village schoolroom, a farm and a printing office, which can be used for demonstrations.
There is new life in the old grocery store Cornelen, which has been re-constructed as a typical village grocery from the 1930’ties – a piece of living local history. Enjoy a fizzy drink and an old fashioned gobstopper or a piece of rock candy while sitting on the bench outside overlooking the old village pond.
The Danish Immigration Museum
The Danish Immigration Museum provides visitors with an insight into the people who, in the course of history, have come to Denmark. The Museum is located centrally in Farum Cultural Centre side by side by cultural institutions such as a cinema, a gallery, a library and a music school.
