Grevena Municipal Museum is located in the town.HistoryOttoman periodUnder Ottoman rule, Grevena was the seat of the kaza of Grevena, Sanjak of Serfice, Manastir Vilayet.1995 earthquakeThe earthquake that occurred in the region on 13 May 1995 with an intensity of 6.6 R caused only material damage. The worst hit area was the county of Ventzia. Luckily there were two warning earthquakes, of lesser intensity, that preceded the main earthquake by a few minutes and warned people. These warnings sent the population out of their houses. When the main earthquake came, it destroyed nearly all the houses in several villages of the Ventzia County - the houses collapsed to the ground - but fortunately all the inhabitants were outside. Another earthquake on Monday 5 January 2005 measured 4.9 R, near Grevena. It took place at 18:00 (UTC), 20:00 local time (EET), and no damage was reported. Another earthquake with a measured intensity of 5.4 R occurred on Thursday 17 July 2007, 19:23 (UTC), 21:23 local time (EET), followed by weak seismic activity. Some older buildings were lightly damaged in villages northeast of Grevena.
