Den Gamle By

Den Gamle By in Aarhus, Denmark is an open air folk museum. The buildings show a variety of period architecture. Inside is housed static museum exhibits. A few houses have shops. The toy museum has an interesting collection of turn of the century toys and the merchant house has a small museum with some lovely period maps. Our young traveler was pleased to visit the bakery and sample some traditional Danish treats for a small charge. The bakery has a little book of recipes that can be purchased. Each house had a traditional sign outside of it – I love these old style signs. One window display showed how tobacco was sold. We were surprised to see the rolled leaves in round spools and the bigger rolls also rolled rope-like.

In contrast to the open air museum in Oslo, Den Gamle By is town/city focused. We liked the country scene more, but enjoyed our time in the city today.
