Welcome to The Funen Village

The Funen Village is an open-air museum that presents a Funen Village milieu as it could have appeared in the time of Hans Christian Andersen.

The Funen Village includes some thirty buildings dating from the 17th to the 19th century, all of which were moved to the museum from various sites in the Funen region.
A village milieu has been created here comprising half-timbered houses, flower gardens, fenced enclosures, livestock and animals, a village pond and a village street - all surrounded by cultivated fields.

Living History
A village consists of more than just farms and houses. The people and animals that make the buildings come alive communicate important aspects of the history of the village.
You can meet the master of the household and the farmhand in the field, you can watch the young girl helping the mistress in the kitchen, and hear the sound of the blacksmith's hammer in the village street.
Rare breed animals graze in the pens, adding their characteristic odour to the smell of brewing beer to help create the correct ambience of the Funen village of bygone times.

During the summer there are a large number of activities and events involving both children and grown-ups, many of them forming part of the regular maintenance in The Funen Village.
