Most of the area where the museum is located was bought in 1910 by Hans Peter Hjerl Hansen (1870-1946), from whom he has taken his name. The museum was run as a private museum by the Hjerl Foundation until 1979, after which it became a self-owned, cultural-historical special museum. There are buildings from all over Denmark and some copies e.g. of Stone Age houses, based on finds from Bornholm.
