  • This museum is nice if you're interested in the life of Andersen and a refresher would for the fairy tales that he has written. A number of popular fairy tales are read out in short with some animation. This is available in Danish, English and German. For children who cannot understand one of these three languages is not an interesting museum. The nearby Ripley Believe it or not museum on the other hand, though.
