Time travel. Den Gamle By
‘Den Gamle By’ is one of the most impressive museums I have ever visited. It is an open air ‘Old Town’ museum in Aarhus, Denmark, where staff are working in the roles of town figures. Everything it’s so well staged to the finest details, that I would call it a mind-blowing time capsule – at least from what I’ve seen so far. Below is a collection of black and white images from the oldest part of the museum. I noticed how houses in Denmark are built to let the light in and the museum buildings didn’t disappoint. I’ve left out from this post the part that was to me the most touching and inspiring, the 1970’s – I think many countries are ignoring their most recent history missing out on a significant way to connect with their younger population. I am particularly thinking here of Romania – but hopefully I’ll come back to that topic and with few images in a different post.
