  • It is very small. The keeper is very sweet but if you are looking for a lot of education on Hans Christian Andersen you'll be disappointed. There is a model house made based on Andersen's description of his childhood house. If you have an imaginative mind you'll at least enjoy this bit, but otherwise you'll likely spend more time in the bookshop that is adjoining the museum (in fact the museum is just a section on the 2nd level of the bookshop).
  • Great history! I grew up with fairy tales and family stories...it's a neat place to see the origins of these writings
  • This place isn't worth it you will not learn much of anything about hans there and nothing of interest is here either don't waste your time up here your better off googling it your self
  • Great little museum providing ample information about HCA.
  • It's located right about the coffee shop. I did learn a little about the writer. It's more of a old book store than a museum.
