The Open-Air Museum features a collection of buildings that originate from Lolland, Falster and Fejø. They include a smithy, a mill, a school, a farm and other building types that are typical of the rural community. The buildings show a wide range of construction and trade traditions from the late 1600s to the early 1900s.


The buildings provide an insight into the everyday life and living conditions of peasants, smallholders, farm labourers, curates and teachers. You can also experience the smithy, the fire station, the mill and the malt kiln, where the local community's common interests were handled.
