Hans Christian Andersen Fairy-tale House - Review
The Hans Christian Andersen Place is one of the most loved attractions by children and avid readers. The place showcases the life of H. C. Andersen- the author who wrote famous books like The Little Mermaid, The Snow Queen, The Ugly Duckling and many others.
Get to know how the famous writer grew up in Odense and later moved to Copenhagen and what shaped him into a national icon. The highlight has to be the fairy tales that are turned into interactive, colorful exhibits with beautiful sound effects! A must if you are travelling with children. The exhibits that replicate the author’s home and his surrounding is a rare treat for history lovers.
Come here to relive the beautiful stories and to get lost in the world spun by one of the most loved Danish figures.

Hans Christian Andersen Fairy-tale House, Copenhagen Reviews
There's a small section providing details about the life of Hans Christian Anderson but the majority of this museum is dedicated to retellings of his most famous stories with some animatronics to act out parts of the story. The stories are roughly 3 minutes each and there is nowhere to sit and listen to them. There are roughly 10 of these stories. I can't imagine many children (or adults) having the patience to stand and listen to each story in it's entirety. Also if the group of people in front of you have selected to listen to the story in a language you don't understand (they play in English, Danish and German) you'll have to wait even longer. I noticed a few parties of people simply walking straight through, spending no more than about ten minutes here. Good for children who enjoy listening to stories, but definitely not a 'must-see' in Copenhagen.
Good and interesting interactive museum of HC Andersen. But it’s pretty small, all route take about 10-15 min. Most of route is listening tales with visual animated decoration. Adult ticket cost 60 dkk.
Interesting place to visit. Not much to see but still enjoyed taking pictures here and there inside the Fairy House.
This museum is really interesting and has interactive stories. It provides a comprehensive biography of H.C. Anderson and is well designed. It is much smaller than expected but worth a quick visit.
Pretty cool! Lots of creepy statues that this town seems to love. You learn a lot of history and it is in Danish, English, and German. Lots of cool things to interact with. Free with the Copenhagen card! It's worth a visit. Right near Tivoli gardens as well.
