Living History

Living History offers a great way to research historical fiction, especially the daily life. And a nice perk of the internet is now you don’t have to travel to the actual locations to see what they’re up to. 🙂

The Ringkøbing-Skjern Museum in Denmark is one of those amazing locations that has a lot to offer – re-enactment opportunities, hands-on activities, and fourteen different historical/cultural buildings. 

As stated on their website:

Ringkøbing-Skjern Museum is an ecomuseum. An ecomuseum sees buildings as objects that tell a common story about the features buildings housed, about the people who lived in and around them, and not least the landscape that surrounds them. Therefore, it makes no sense for a ecomuseum to get buildings of glass and frame, or for that matter, move them into an open air museum.

The website is offered in Danish and German – Google Translate does a decent job of translating it into English, but you don’t need words to understand the beautiful pictures.
