This is a wonderful museum that outlines Hans Christian Anderson's Life works and achievements. It brought back memories of my father reading stories to me. It is old fashioned and very quaint. I am so glad we spent some time here.

An extra attraction as you complete the Ripley's tour. Old fashioned, quaint and the stories are in many languages. If you had kids of the right age I think they'd like it.

We wanted to go to the believe it or not museum and since we had the Copenhagen card the stuff at the entrance gave us a coin to go and see this. It's extremely small and really nothing outstanding or special. Would not recommend
