The Funen Village, Odense

4.5
#3 of 21 in Museums in Odense
Discover the traditional life of Danish farmers from the time of Hans Christian Andersen at The Funen Village. This open-air museum was founded as a public works project in 1942 during the German occupation. Some 30 original buildings were moved to the museum from various sites in the Funen region. Walk down the village street along half-timbered houses, flower gardens, and fenced enclosures with livestock. With the living history you can experience the atmosphere of a day in the country in the 18th century. Smell beer brewing, watch a young girl helping the mistress in the kitchen, and hear the sound of the blacksmith's hammer.

  • By going around in Den fynske landsby makes me feel happiness. Because there is not much of the old time left, and here you see them work and go in the vehicle. It is great:) And very idyllic

  • It's not a museum, it's a village. You definitely have to see it, it's like an old village, with old people, Anna you will feel like you are getting back in time. And people there are working, really working, like wood making, and animal caring. It's just a really good place that you have to see!
  • Fun tourist sightseeing, old vintage village like life used to be in denmark. Awesome acting and representation from the personnel/volunteers. Price, various eating and drinking options (vending machine with good coffee near the playground).
  • Beautiful museum dedicated to tell the stories and share the atmosphere of a traditional vernacular village of Fun and Denmark in general. Visit all the old farms, pat the animals and talk to the locals. There are also often special events and horse carriage riding. When you are hungry you should visit the inn cafe.
  • Very nice historic village with interesting activities and theme
  • Good park. Complementary to the one of Aarhus as more rural life and farms are shown
