A special landmark for the city is its original open-air museum called the "Funen Village". The museum occupies a vast area, it is a complex of beautiful wooden houses dated from the 16th to 19th centuries. All the houses presented here are original, they were brought here from different parts of Denmark. Each house houses its own interesting collection of ethnographic exhibits. Visitors to the museum have a chance to see collections of antique utensils and furniture, discover an old forge and various handicraft shops.
An equally interesting cultural facility is the Danish Railway Museum, the largest museum of its kind in Scandinavia. Opened in 1918, it was originally located in Copenhagen, and in 1975 it was moved to Odense. Today, its guests can see unique model railway layouts, ferries, and trains; the museum presents 15 antique vehicles. Today the museum covers 10, 000 square meters, and its most valuable exhibits are considered 19th-century locomotives.
Among the religious monuments is Saint Hans Church originally built in the 15th century as part of a large monastery. Over time, the monastery was abandoned and came to complete desolation. The church we can see is its only surviving part. According to historical data, the very first church in this place was built in the late 13th century. Many interesting old artifacts have been preserved within its walls. Next to the building, you can see the ruins of historic structures.
