This village shows the life on the island around 1800. The buildings come from around the island and were placed in this one location. The people walk around in traditional clothing and do thing the old way. Like when we were there they just collected...More

The idea of having an open door kind of "historical museum" is excellent! Visitors can travel back in time to experience the very typical Danish village. But when we were there, very few activities / workshops were on-going. Most of the houses were left open...More

We went there with a young man in a wheelchair, and it was difficult to drive o the dry sandy footpaths. Besides, there were only a couple of houses - mainly barns- that were accesible. The atmosphere and especially the animals were great

Nice park and nice farms and fields and gardens but not much interactivity or media. Horses and hens could be seen, but only a long distance could be seen few pigs, sheep, goat and cows. The work of preserving Danish old breeds looks poor that...More

This is my first trip to Europe, and I had seen plenty of castles, museums and statues. This was far more to my liking. They have moved authentic 17th-19th century farm buildings from various villages around Funen to have an (almost) complete picture of what...More

Cosy place and actually surprisingly good for children also. Had it been adults only I would have considered it slightly boring to be honest. Lots of hands on activities and food to taste.
