Open air museum was my favourite one during my trip to Tiblisi. It combines old houses from different parts of Georgia. Even you can see old vessels and furniture. Once you go to the house - you will feel how old people lived in past...More

Free admission, beautiful grounds and lots to see and learn. If the weather is nice, this is a perfect place to bring a picnic kit with you!

I love a living museum and this one delivers. So much fun to learn about how people lived and see such a large collection of early buildings. They also have quite a good cafe if you forget your lunch.

This museum, covering many acres, was very well done and included many English explanations describing the time period, likely occupants, and various trades involved, during the past several hundred years in Denmark. One is inclined to believe this was an existing village, but in fact...More

Get a train from Copenhagen station to Sorgenfri station (Sorgenfri station is a station on the Hillerød radial of the S-train network) and walk from there, it's about 11min.
