Great place to wander in and out of original and replica houses from all over Denmark at different periods in history. Plenty of open space for children to run and play. Cafe also good.

Get a train from Copenhagen station to Sorgenfri station (Sorgenfri station is a station on the Hillerød radial of the S-train network) and walk from there, it's about 11min.
