We enjoyed walking through the rooms furnished at the time of HC’s life. It is part of the entire HC complex of interesting history exhibits.

Okay if you visit the other places in the guide you get from the museum but not worth doing alone. There is a leaflet with a guide showing the main places to visit in the town if you want to find out about Anderson.

It was great to view his childhood home (between 2-12 years of age). We knew nothing about his life or upbringing, so it was good to see & learn of this. It gave some ‘insight’ into many of his Fairytales

It is difficult not to be transported to HCA times in this little house. Very nicely kept and charming gardens.

Just like any other Danish town has kept the authenticity. Take you to back in time. Comfortable and budget hotels and nice restaurants around.

This is one of the museums you can get in the 5 for 1 H. C. Andersen museums and worth a look if you've chosen that. Otherwise don't go there's not much to see.
