  • Really cosy place with lots of atmosphere. Beautiful nature. We had the dog with and it worked flawlessly. Our 3 year old also had a nice day with looking at animals.

  • This is an area in which they rebuilt several houses of peasants from different periods. Some of these are furnished and in certain periods there are people dressed up and do crafts (tombolino, spinning wool, wood carving) that teach children. There are also several windmills, one is open and children can rotate it. They also make clown shows and of the Little Mermaid, but in Danish and incomprehensible for foreigners. You can see when they feed to the pigs. You can ride a pony and ride the chariot drawn by horses, but these two activities are extra. There are horses, sheep and cows in special enclosures. The Museum has several picnic areas and a single kiosk where you can buy food, with the chance to buy hot dogs, sandwich of the day, day cake and ice cream. In addition, there are two areas to purchase souvenirs. The Museum is no longer free, we paid 75 crowns per adult and 8-year-olds entered for free. The map is 10 kroons and is useful to move ...

  • Still and interesting place, if one is to old buildings, history and ancient craft, done live, with talented interesting knowledgeable people. You can use very time-free parking-dining-easy and reasonable.

  • The place itself is a lovely reconstruction of various time periods of danish history. Different houses represent different periods and have been disassembled at their original location to be put back together in the museum. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Now the big but. While i think it's an absolutely lovely place for Danes (and especially their children) it's a pain for foreign visitors who don't speak Danish. You do get a flyer in German or English which made me expect to find further information in the different languages on site as well (like in Gammel Estrup). We'll you don't. So all you have is a paragraph for each building with no further info, which is very little especially considering the price of the museum. So. I would recommend it to Danes who want to find out more about their culture. Would definitely recommend it to danish families. Would NOT recommend it for anyone visiting from another country unless you speak Danish.
  • Interesting open air museum with people working the workshops during the summer, and they are all willing to explain about what they are doing.
  • Super place with excellent and friendly staff/volunteers, all taking you back in time. Better than just a traditional walk around and look at exhibits, especially with kids
  • Worth a visit, especially when the museum is "alive" meaning that there will be a lot of actors illustrating what it would be like when the village were build
  • Don't expect to be able to spend a full day there. Not much to do
