  • We visited Karen Blixen's Museum a rainy day in the summer. It became a good and interesting experience. There was a brief intro lecture which meant we got much more out of the exhibition afterwards. The same was the case with a short film (about 10 mins). It is recommended to hear/See both. There were good descriptions in both Danish and English in each room. It was a lovely ' living ' way to be at the museum in the main person's daily living rooms, which stands as they did in fact. It is also advisable to go for a walk in the lovely garden and visit the burial site under the Great Oak. Discounts are granted for membership of the older case.

  • We loved visiting Karen Blixen's house. We were at her farm in Nairobi before, and enjoyed visiting here now. The coffee and cake in the cafe are really nice as well.
  • So lovely home museum, my heart left there! I'll come back.
  • Unless you are a fan of her publications, this isn't really worth visiting. The gardens seem a bit run down, and the home is just ok.
  • If you liked "Out of Africa" this will appeal to you.
  • Very nice spot. Intimate museum for those who love her books
