Frilandsmuseet | Copenhagen
Earlier this month in Copenhagen we paid a visit to Frilandsmuseet (The Open Air Museum). I hadn't been here since I was a child and although we visited on a day which turned out to be super rainy it was a great experience.
The museum is part of the National Museum of Denmark and it it huge! It is one of the oldest (more than 100 years old) and largest open air museums in the world.
Here you can visit the homes of rich and poor as they lived in the Danish countryside over the past centuries. You can enjoy the beautiful outdoor locations, and nature and inside the houses you can see how people used to live. The museum has lots of animals as well and it's really an amazing place for big ones and little ones.
It was such a shame that the rain started to pour down. We tried to resist anyway but in the end we had to give up, since we were completely wet.
If you plan to come for a visit choose a day with sunshine and make sure you reserve the whole day for your visit. We only had around 3 hours and we didn't manage to see everything. Also remember that the houses start to close down one hour before the museum closes.
The museum is located outside Copenhagen, just out of Lyngby. Visit the website for more info.
