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.
