The Open Air Museum is a great way to spend a nice afternoon in the outskirts of Copenhagen. You will see old farm houses and buildings with its nice and peaceful grounds. Grab lunch at the Cafe for a typical Danish lunch.

This is a nice museum for a day out away from the city and it's free. There are several farmhouses, two mills, charming cottages with typical danish furnitures etc. As any open air sites, you'll enjoy it better if you get nice weather.

Its free entry, but unless u enjoy learning about danish cultures/traditions, its kinda boring. But it is a very nice walk around the museum by itself.

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.
