This outstanding open air museum demonstrates some of the history and buildings of Denmark as it developed over the last several hundred years. A few buildings are native to the area, but others have been relocated to demonstrate the range of occupations and habitations. We spent 2 hours here but did not allocate enough time to see it all. If we weren't on the way to another attraction, we would have spent more time. Very friendly to English speakers, some surprising exhibits (wagon with live horses moving about, etc.) make this a good stop for adults and children alike. Reasonably priced.

I really enjoyed the Open Air Musuem in Oslo so was very excited about visiting this one. The exteriors are interesting but the interiors are not decorated accurately according to the century the buildings are from. This then becomes very samey as 16th, 17th and 18th Century buildings all have 19th Century interiors. Worth a visit but not worth the very long walk involved. Just go to the main area that has the majority of the houses.

It's a nice place where you can see how the people in different centuries lived. Interesting are also the lane with shops doctors and a pharmacy from the beginning of the 20th century. Unfortunately we were too late for the museum of printing and the house of art.
Be aware that you have to enter the code 9075 at the code locked door to leave the open air museum. This is only written in Swedish at the door.

The open-air museum is definitely worth a visit if you're in Copenhagen for a few days. Very interesting to see what village life was like in the past and how the buildings were constructed for cold weather.

Highly recommended. If you're interested in history and love to spend time in the open air, this museum will be a great choice for you. you'll be given a map of the whole estate, which will help you navigate through and make sure you won't miss anything! The staff is nice and friendly. Toilets every half a mile.
Make sure you reserve at least 3 hours of your time to walk around! Would love to be back!
