Embark on a fascinating time journey through 400 years of Danish history

From the present with the pizzeria and the rainbow family, the welfare society and the broad-mindedness of the 1970s and modern times in the 1920s with the Car Dealership and Schou’s Soap House to the old market town with the merchant’s house, the shoemaker and the distillery.

In Den Gamle By, you become one with history, and you are able to smell, taste and feel your way forward while exploring the streets and passages, look into people’s homes and strike a bargain in one of the historical shops.

Throughout the museum, you will meet people in historical costume who will show you around and tell you about the exhibits. It’s almost like being there yourself.
