The Old Town in Aarhus
The Old Town in Aarhus, Denmark (Danish: Den Gamle By), is an open-air town museum located in the Aarhus Botanical Gardens. In 1914 the museum opened as the world's first open-air museum of its kind, concentrating on town culture rather than village culture. The museum consists of 75 historical buildings from year 1500 to 1800 collected from 20 townships in year 1900 - from all parts of the country. Some of the buildings, homes and shops have been preserved, as they were back in the days - so you can experience a kind of time-travel back into time.
