If you want a flavor of what Denmark looked like during the Middle Ages, then head towards the Møntergården Museum. This is its namesake building on a street named Overgade. The red brick, half-timbered farm structure with ornate rosettes was built in 1646 by nobleman Falk Gøye. The structure was restored in 1930 and became a museum in 1941. Inside are numerous exhibits tracing Odense’s history back to its founding in 988. Also on display is the Koelbjerg Man. These skeletal remains are from ancient Denmark circa 8000 BC.
