Today I went to the Open Air Museum.  The open air museum is 80 acres of houses, farmhouses, apparently even an industrial town (didn't see that part).  Best of all...it's free!  Which was good since I put down $50 to get transportation passes which will hopefully last awhile.  I also spent $20 to go to a sporting event.  I know...what am I thinking?  But I wanted to experience European sports fans.  Oh and that's $20 for standing only seats.  And this isn't for soccer (I don't have a death wish).  It's for handball, the sport of Denmark.  The women's team is basically the best in the world...probably because no one plays handball.

Anyways, each house was basically taken from it's original location somewhere in Denmark, taken apart piece by piece and then reassembled in this museum.  There were farmhouses, windmills, sailors homes, pretty much a mix of everything.  These houses are  basically the row houses of the 18th century.  Low income housing!

When I said the houses were moved, completely, I meant everything.  Everything from the pictures on the wall to the tapestries.  Plus the museum is very loosely guarded and you are free to walk most anywhere and walk into all of the houses.
