The Open Air Museum - living history
Welcome to The Open Air Museum - an iconic destination for over 100 years! One of the largest and oldest open air museums in the world. The Open Air Museum is a museum of rural architecture focusing on landscapes, buildings and people. But it is far more than just a historical museum, it is also a popular tourist attraction that appeals to the visitor's imagination. Arriving at the museum, you enter a different world: the countryside of historic Denmark. It is not difficult to imagine yourself transported centuries back in time, strolling along the gravel roads and visiting the fully-furnished homes of the people of the past, such as the peasant, the wealthy miller, the village weaver or the inmates of the poorhouse.
