“Time travel back to the old days”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

This museum has a collection of many different houses from olden Denmark as well as areas nearby such as Sweden and Norway. The homes are furnished like they would've been back then and you can walk through most of the houses! It is an open air museum so I would recommend going on a sunny day. Many families come out and have picnics here.

Want to see old days Denmark? This is a great way to experience how life was in Scandinavia hundred of years ago. This is a large area with lots of houses to explore so do bring your picnic basket and the entire family for a lovely day out!

“Excellent on a sunny day”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

For the fans of medieval architecture, this is an excellent visit, particularly on a sunny day. Free entry, and you don't have to buy the map as the buildings are described in Danish and English on a plaque in front of each of them. How long you spend depends on how much you like medieval buildings, and whether you want to stop for a meal/picnic or not. Can get busy with school children when the schools are in.

It's quite a large site, so would recommend you bring decent shoes for walking.

If you're a keen cyclist, and you hire a decent bike, you can cycle there in under an hour on the excellent cycle paths (as long as you have a map/GPS with you as I did). Would recommend most people use public transport though.
