I love a living museum and this one delivers. So much fun to learn about how people lived and see such a large collection of early buildings. They also have quite a good cafe if you forget your lunch.

Get a train from Copenhagen station to Sorgenfri station (Sorgenfri station is a station on the Hillerød radial of the S-train network) and walk from there, it's about 11min.
