Overview
More
Time travel to the 19th century The Open-Air Museum is situated in the middle of the scenic Maribo Lakes Nature Park. A little gem that provides experiences for both body and soul. Go back in time and feel the ambience. Visit the old half-timbered houses and discover what rural life was like in the old days. Walk through the small rooms with their low ceilings and peek behind the curtains of the beds. Take off your shoes, while inside the farmhouse and feel for yourself the different floors. Write on the blackboard in the school and enjoy the idyllic flora. Get up close and personal with the farmer, the laborer, the priest, the school teacher and the smith in the old houses, showing 300 years of building culture. There are ample opportunities to act out one’s inner child with several different old village games and activities.

Here you can see how danish people live in the old times, there way of life. The show here the common household stuff they used in the old times and you can imagine what kind of life they had then.

Call ahead. They advertised being open on Easter but when we showed up all gates were closed. Supposedly there were still 1,5 hours until closing time.

It is a small museum, but it still manages to show the life of several different social classes. There is the home of a single mother of five, the accomodation of the minor cleric, the medium sized farm and more (including the obligatory smithy). It...More

It is a large area of old farmhouses/windmills etc that showcases how the early Danes lived. On a nice day, it is a very pleasant experience (walk and the history).
