Frilandsmuseet in Lyngby is a part of The National Museum of Denmark. Lyngby is north of Copenhagen (10 minutes by car), and here you’ll find one of the oldest and largest open air museums in the world.
The Museum contains over 50 farms, houses, smallholdings and mills from all over Denmark (and some Germany, the old parts of Denmark) from the period 1650-1940.
It also features beautiful gardens, idyllic landscapes and old Danish breeds of livestock. There are a number of pleasant eating areas and the museum has it’s own restaurant.
Most of the houses are open for visitors and you can also take a horse-drawn carriage, that’ll take 20 minutes.
You’re welcome to bring your dog, the entrance is free and so is the parking. The museum is open from spring-autumn, but closed every Monday. See history become alive at Frilandsmuseet.
