A nicely organised history of Andersson's life in an ideal setting. The only improvement would be a better selection of gifts in the gift shop.
The setting was lovely. Plan on spending at least 1.5 hours as there is a lot to see. Wish there were more interactive exhibits and less general history.
You can learn anything and everything about the famous Danish storyteller here, but some of the displays/exhibits are poorly lighted if you're interested in reading all that is written (in English and Danish) on the accompanying placards. However, overall it's worth a visit.
I had not visited H.C. Andersens Hus for 45 years. I had visited during my first trip to Denmark in 1968, when the house was not surrounded by a museum.

We were really immersed in the author's world and had a very good insight of the era he lived in, his inspirations, his passions, his relationships with the world etc. Briefly, his life. The visit was never boring and it was well built, we had time to... More
I didn't find this particularly interesting. I was not familiar with his books before hand. The Museum was mostly about his life and where he wrote things. It wasn't one of the better museums we visited on our trip. (for example the Rembrandt museum in Amsterdam which only had one Rembrandt had a very interesting demonstration on how they mixed... More
I found this place to be very fascinating, learning about the challenges Hans Christian Andersen faced in his life. I could almost feel his presence there. I loved the detail and could have spent more time. Now, I'm looking forward to seeing the movie "Hans Christian Andersen" with Donald O'Conner.
