I'm sorry. We didn't get it! "Interactive " people appear to be living statues. No eye contact and ALL looked bored. No interaction at all. I couldn't recommend this. Too expensive for a walk.More

pros: a small skansen with live attractions, toys and actitivties to try, kind staff, nice place, quality souvenirs in the shop, cafe, picnic places, fun for kids cons: small - but that's why it's enough 1-2 hours to get around

Outdoor museum depicting the live of Vikings in Denmark. Best to visit when the weather is dry as most of the exhibits are outdoors. Great for a family outing, explore the village and interact with the Vikings.
