The Funen Village
The Funen Village (Danish: Den Fynske Landsby) is a Danish open-air museum located in the Fruens Bøge district of Odense. It features 25 buildings from Funish villages, most of which date to the 18th and 19th century.
The Funen Village was founded as a public works project in 1942, during the German occupation of Denmark, and opened to the public on 1 April 1946. Among the guests attending the opening were King Christian X. The museum's open-air scene opened to the public already in 1944, and was used for patriotic song festivals (alsangsstævner) during the Occupation.
