Notes NOTES: The Old Town is a state certified national museum of Danish cultural history and opened to the public in 1914. The museum's director, Peter Holm, from the beginning in 1909 and until he retired in 1945, succeeded in saving 50 historic market-town houses from demolition as well as finding the funds to re-erect these houses as The Old Town.
