The Funen Village, Odense

4.6
#2 of 15 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.

    A nice little place. Compared to places like the open air museum in Broad and Cooperative city Nyvang missing just the last finish. A few things stand a little offhand in barns and stables. Spisestedet is almost a gourmet restaurant decorated in a fine old Inn. It gives an extremely price level which doesn't work quite right.

    We spent a rainy day in the Museum, with few other visitors, we had plenty of time and space to study the various exhibitions. The houses provide a good insight into the history, but we wanted more information on what the various objects and machines were used to. To hit on live animals is always exciting and not at least try to milk cow. Usendvanlig nice Museum Shop, but relevant items related to the region

    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.

    Great village but not so many explanations. I didn't really enjoy the visit but my husband does.

Where to stay in Odense
