What to see and do in Aarhus

 

The Old Town
The Old Town is an open-air museum with half-timbered houses from all over Denmark – taken down and re-built and re-constructed. It is Denmark’s National Museum of Urban History, the biggest museum in Jutland with unique collections of toys, silver, china, clothes, clocks and watches; with streets and yards, workshops and shops reflecting life from 1600 up to our great-grand-parents’ days. It is a living and breathing experience of what it was like to live and work in a Danish market town, as it was in the old days. Meet the people and characters of yesteryear, experience life as it was in their living rooms and kitchens; and smell the flowers right in their own gardens. Try out old childrens games, or why not go on an exploration through-out the museums extensive exhibitions?
