North of Copenhagen is Lyngby, whose main draw is this open-air museum. About 50 Danish farmhouses and cottages from the period 1650–1950 have been painstakingly dismantled, moved here, reconstructed, and filled with period furniture and tools. Trees, farm animals, and gardens surround the museum; bring lunch and plan to spend the day. For children, the farm animals and history-theme pantomime performances are the biggest draw. To get here, take the B Line S-train from all major Copenhagen stations to Sorgenfri station, then walk right and follow the signs. The trip from Copenhagen encompasses five travel zones.
