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.

    • You are welcome :). Aarhus is a beautiful city and they have two more great museums, the Museum of Art (see one of my previous posts with the rainbow panorama) and Moosgard Museum (even the buildings are pieces of art in themselves).


  1. Very nice that you could do a series of photos in there. I love that you chose to portray it in B&W. I visited a place like that in the U.S. once where people were in character all the time, it’s really impressive how seriously they ‘play the game’! 🙂
