Odense is perhaps most famous for this globally loved children’s author. The town has expressed its pride for this favourite for over a century now, since 1908, when this museum opened. Chronicling his life from the humble start as a shoemaker’s son, the museum intersperses his story with drawings sketches and scenes from his life. Sculptures are scattered about here and there that depict scenes from his tales and his life. It’s less of a simple exhibition and more of a simple movie one that immerses you completely in the man’s struggles, triumphs, failures and loves.

The charming building in which this museum is housed was actually his home once upon a time. There’s a lovely little cafeteria outside the museum; and the surrounding park is a good place to stroll, perhaps with a fairy tale tucked under your arm. And finally, to make it all come really alive, around three they will all perform a play one in which all the characters from his stories and Anderson himself will be paraded in very believable costumes it’s an absolute treat for your children if you’ve got them along. And yes, they pose with you for photographs.
