A visit to Karensminde Agricultural Museum feels like stepping into another age. You can visit the farm and see how the work was done in the heydays of the farm back in the 18th and 19th centuries. The whole family can lend a helping hand when it is time to harvest, dig up potatoes or help milk the cow. In the meantime food is being prepared on the old woodstove.

You can go have a look around the stables and see the pig that often has piglets. On the green meadow you will find the goat and the geese. The rabbits and the guinea pig are lying comfortably in their cages and the cat lies in the sun on the doorstep.
When the big horses are harnessed to the wagon you can have a drive around the countryside in the old horse-drawn carriage. All year there are activities for the whole family on Karensminde. Enjoy making wooden toys in the wood workshop, make patterns on fabric with carved potatoes, paint eggs or lend a helping hand in the kitchen when soup or marmalade is made. Take a look at the list of activities here.
In the farmhouse you can explore the rooms and in all of them there are tales from the past. The volunteers are happy to tell about their work and they have a lot of anecdotes from the history of the farm and about the people who ones lived there. You can bring you lunch and eat it in these magnificent surroundings or you can buy a cup of coffee with a piece of cake.
