  • If you like these fairy tales from Andersen, you will not want to miss this small museum and bookstore. It’s free to public. The museum is on second floor when the bookstore is on the street level. There’s no restroom for public usage. But you can find it in nearby park which is only a few steps away.
  • I enjoy museums. I'd heard of this small museum the week before our visit. Hans Christian Anderson was a brilliant storyteller, with a vivid imagination. I've added pictures of a handful of stories to his credit. This museum includes a detailed history of his life, interests, connections (social, etc. ), with photographs, a small model of his childhood home, and various collections of works based on his titles (e.g. an entire glass case with memorabilia of "the little mermaid"). The museum is located above a bookshop. Entrance is free. While we were there, another 4-5 small groups attended. A popular place, considering its size.
