Part of the museum, it is a small house said to have housed many families. Once you have seen how small it is, you will be grateful for what you have. A reminder of how few "things" we really need to live.

Perhaps I am a bit biased, because I read about it and was influenced by that, but to me it seemed to be less than expected. Of course, that does not mean that for someone else it won't be beautiful.

If you saw H. C. Andersens house it is a must to see the place were he lived as a teen as well! A nice quick visit that completes the HCA tour!

This museum runs through Mr. Andersen's life, from childhood to death. The English descriptions on the placards provide plenty of details.
