one of the oldest and biggest open air museums in the world! Jul 14, 2016
Located in a very leafy and quiet suburb of town, one couldn't imagine the scale of this museum just based on walking through the neighbourhood. It's quite a walk from the train station so please take the bus which stops right outside.

Per the website, supposedly it is one of the largest and oldest in the world: 86 acres, more than 50 farms, mills and houses from the period 1650-1940. What I liked was that it's not just the houses, but even the gardens and landscapes have been re-errected to give visitors an impression of the history and environments of the country life as it was. Virtually every region in Denmark and the Faeroe Islands, the former Danish provinces of southern Sweden and northern Germany is represented as well.

If anything, I'd say spend more time here as it can be a bit overwhelming if you showed up late afternoon (like I did), and think you can be "done" in 2 hours and you realise the scale of the museum.

Also, the toilets can be a bit more visible. I kept circling one section of the museum so many times trying to find it (Per the instructions), at 1 point I was so desperate to pee I was considering peeing inside of the old mill houses!

Peeing in the mill house was probably what people did way back when.
