South of the centre at Sejerskovvej 20 is Den Fynske Landsby (Funen Village; March–June & mid-Aug to late Oct Tues–Sun 10am–5pm; July to mid-Aug daily 10am–6pm; 60kr, June–Aug 85kr), a living, breathing nineteenth-century village made up of buildings brought here from all over Funen, including a windmill and a school. In summer, free shows are staged at the open-air theatre. Buses #110 and #111 run to the village from the bus station.
It’s infinitely better, however, to walk to the museum by following the river south about 4km via the ornamental park of Munke Mose. Boats also run there hourly (80kr return) via Odense Zoo (daily from 9am, closing time between 4 and 7pm, depending on day and season; Dec closes 2pm; March–Oct open till 10pm some Sat; 150–190kr), which has Northern Europe’s largest exclusively African safari park.
