Very good for children to play. It's a lovely place when children can play a lot with beautiful stuff and costumes. It doesn't make sense to have the parents to pay. I understand it's a family experience but in the end children play, parents look...More

A great place for young kids. Plenty of costumes to put on, rooms with different themes and space to run around. My kids loved getting their face painted and painting in the brilliant arts and crafts workshop. Highly recommended as a 3-4 hours activity.

Children are normaly not very interresting in Museums but if you combine the visist with H.C. Andersens home I am sure it will pass. Childrens can spend hoers drssing in princess gowns or solders uniforms. Selling Ice cream or serving coffee or preparing food
