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.

Hans Christian Andersen Museum, Odense Reviews - Write a Review

  • Nice story and good exhibits. You really got a feel for the challenges that HCA experienced during his life. Don't bother going downstairs though.

  • Museum is not that big but you can learn a lot about his life. Really enjoyed it

  • Not charming, not tourist friendly, not cheap, and a waste of valuable time. The site is surrounded by a construction zone with ugly modern condos and the grounds lack charm. Closing hours are too early in the day. The adjacent faux street seems to exist just for facebook photo opportunities.

  • Hard to imagine how Anderson could overcome the obstacles in his life and create such imaginary works. Humble place in good condition.

  • Very nice place! Free entrance to the garden and not so expensive also inside
