05 May 2013 Currently the 'Museum' is semi-open during refurbishment. Four weeks ago the guide did show us round the inside of the house, but all the furniture, carpets, pictures, etc, had been carefully wrapped up to protect them. He had a very worn out guide book but told us there would be fresh copies once they reopened. Today I revisited but got there after the house/museum closing time, so I don't know whether they are allowing visitors into the house just now. Staff were replacing furniture so it looks possible that it will be open very soon. Even so the security staff allowed us to view the outside of the house, the original coffee processing machinery and the very hills she described..."I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills", and there they are! Albeit now with six large wind turbines. This is a must see visit for anyone with a real interest in Karen Blixen, whether engendered by the movie or her books or the legend. The place reeks of atmosphere-this is 'hair up the back of the neck' stuff. Now also see her other home at Rungsted Kyst, north of Copenhagen.
