    that has had a major role in her writing, fun and see the graves, and read about her life. Afterwards, you can enjoy the garden in Café'en and perhaps buy a little cake

    and even as fans already know all of this woman to the admittedly extraordinary fate. They see here where she lived the last part of his life. To visit 5 rooms on the ground floor of a House is not enough to be really excited about this visit. We discovered while she had a talent for drawing and for those who don't know that through her books, they will find a small movie. You can also visit before leaving the t the adjacent Park bird sanctuary where it is based.

    Nice Museum, a guided tour through the private rooms in small groups is interesting and informative. The House and the garden are beautiful, nicely designed small shop and the cafe.

    If you're an "Out of Africa" fan and/or like doing things that may not be on a typical tourist's agenda, you should visit this museum while in Denmark. It's well worth the travel time from Copenhagen (30 minute commuter train ride followed by a 15 minute walk from the station to the museum). I loved the beautiful "Danish Riviera" views, rich history, and amazingly well-preserved décor, paintings, and artifacts. Its little gift shop is surprisingly fabulous, too.

    Beautiful house and so sad life with endless energy! Strongly recommended for everyone

    You get a pretty full picture of Karen Blixen's life and work after a visit to this museum. You walk around in the house where she lived and there are plenty of photographs on display depicting the different periods in her life in Denmark and Kenya. Some areas of the museum look a bit makeshift, but generally this is an interesting museum and a wonderful place to visit.
