A pretty little house!

This is where the famous HC. Andersen lived. A pretty little house on a small road. We sought refuge from the rain and thought it was nice to see.

It was interesting to see how he lived and what his everyday life was like but I expected the exhibition to be a bit more extensive than this. The children found it very dull though, luckily they enjoyed the garden.

While the tiny house is well presented, it is the relationship with the author that makes it special. I am happy to have seen it, though.

Part of the H..C.Andersen museum. Watch your head if your 5'11" or taller. I wonder how Hans C. himself being quite tall got around this house with out banging his head. Wonderful insight into his home life and what it was like to live in Odense at that time period. Cobblestone streets surround his home. There are 2 restaurants nearby.... More

We were there after it was closed but it still was fun to see where HCA lived and walk through the pretty little neighborhood and nearby park.

This house is included in the museum . The house is small, however the docent was very informative and answered all our questions.

Everything here is on a modest scale - small rooms, low ceilings, tiny bed, Hans Christian Andersen's father's tiny workshop (he was a cobbler by trade), the small garden at the back... Yet it also testifies to a very affectionate upbringing. The "locus genii" is highly palpable. A most friendly and courteous curator. A ticket to the Museum also entitles... More

This a cute little house and clearly not a patch on the actual museum. Nice to see the humble beginnings of a national icon.
