Ok I know I'm too old for this but like others I went as we were near and it was offered with our Copenhagen Card. My problem is I'm not sure what age group of kids this would actually appeal to. Certainly too difficult for the under 5s and not for the over 10s and maybe not for many of the in-betweens! I did like the introduction about his life but that was it for us, although the very strategically placed envelop in the emperor's hand was amusing!

Not very busy at all inside which helped create the atmosphere needed to enjoy the fairy tales . These were told by using scenery and audio for some and boards for others.
You will not spend more than an hour inside but the warm feeling stays with you all day

Ok I'm not a child and it definitely is a place that will attract children. However I was brought upon the stories and so I was expecting more. I probably did the whole exhibit in less than half an hour. I had the Copenhagen Card so it was 'free' and if I had paid I woul have been very unhappy. The picture on this page is not the actual place. You have to go in via Ripleys Believe it or Not (but it is separate to that)

Most of the exhibitions are just models that illustrate one of the stories, perhaps I shouldnt have expected more, but in those circumstances I would have expected the entrance fee to be cheaper (Yes I know it's Copenhagen). The only one I really liked was the Emperors New Clothes.

Really enjoyed this exhibition of HC Andersen life and works. The place has been done for children however due to information is still engaging for adults. Enjoyed going round the iconic stories however went in free with the Copenhagen Card.

Had we gone in has a paying customer due to how expensive Copenhagen is don't think I would have liked this as much.

Inside the Ripley's Believe It or Not building is the Hans Christian Andersent Fairy Tale House. Here, you walk through storyboards that tell about HC's life and stories. Some of the stories are illustrated in 3-D animatronic displays of The Little Mermaid, The Steadfast Tin Soldier, The Little Matchgirl, and the Emperor's New Clothes. Press a button and you can hear each story. Quirky. Made me want to re-read all the stories : )

Pricey to visit so suggest you buy a cOPENhagen card, which will get you free admission here and to so many other sights in and around Copenhagen, as well as free bus, train and metro transport.
