We spent several hours here and enjoyed every minute of it. The whole complex of buildings and exhibits was interesting. However, they are in the midst of a huge renovating construction project that will make it even more interesting in 2020.

One day in Odense and the place is closed. Read the fine print. Quaint but over hyped. Not really worth the effort. Anything that is open closes at 5pm.

This is an interesting museum with some good artefacts. Tip: you can buy a ticket here which includes entry to 5 different Anderson related places in the town; it also includes a map showing the way you need to walk.

The ticket include 5 other stops which makes it worthwhile. The city is all about H.C.A., but the museum does explain a great deal that we didn't know before. There is a lot of reading so plan on taking your time. Montergarden which is one...More

We took a detour to view the museum and surprisingly it was closed for hours (without notice). We were two of about 15 tourists who also came by to visit the museum in the few minutes we were there and all were disappointed... More
