What travelers are saying
- Egeskov Castle is situated in a fairy tale setting, surrounded by a moat and beautifully landscaped gardens. There's some mildly interesting exhibits inside the castle, and then there's some curiously-unrelated museums on the castle grounds. Overall though, if you're looking for an interesting outing where you'll find an abundance of great snapshot opportunities for your social media accounts, Egeskov Castle is worth visiting.Written September 14, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Denmark has so much to offer when it's about visiting thinks . This zoo is one of them. We visited the place in May , when everything is green and beautiful . The place itself is beautiful . You can take it as a relaxing day in a park , even if you are not interested in seeing animals ,which i recommend to stop and see them . I recommend for families . Kids will be very impressed !Written February 15, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Went here on a whim as it was nearby and really impressed.
The museum is centrally located next to the train station and in a great authentic old train shed, although more could have been made of this.
The exhibits are well presented and good info available for Danish and of my interest English. There's also great play areas both indoors and out which frankly are worth a separate review as they're amazing!Written August 21, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Really enjoyed the various food samples & picking apples to make juice. Both unexpected & enjoyable. The buildings were so interesting. We received a 50% discount with our HC Anderson tickets.Written October 8, 2023
- Really great experience! We really loved, that it was such a big ‘sound experience’. Even our blind family member enjoyed it!! Some times the sound wasn’t perfect, but we made it work.Written October 18, 2023
- We were welcomed friendly and we asked if the guided tour was possible in english. No problem, and 10 minutes later it seemed we were the only visitors with the tour in english (another danish group did the also the tour, so we did it in reverse order to not disturb each other).
Our guide was passionate and told in every room the history and answered all our questions: civil security, police, warschaupact, nuclear threat...
The best 60 DKK you will ever spend if this stuff interests you.
But do take the guided tour.Written July 30, 2023
- We were lucky enough to be in Odense when Brandts had an exhibition over what they had had in the building over the years. We had a really nice time in Brandts and will quite certainly come back next time in Odense. Thanks :-)Written July 30, 2020
- Odense is a nice place and if wander around the town you most likely would get to its cathedral of St Knuds. In addition it's a birthplace of HC Andersen.Written August 9, 2021
- We took our two young children (5 and 8) to see a real viking ship. You start off in a small but interesting museum, split into sections for kids and adults. The kids section made vikings interesting for kids, and they also got to try on some traditional clothes and learn about viking lives. The more grown up part had a recreation of the longship (complete with slightly creepy dead mannequin) and loads of info on weapons and gory stuff for the older kids and adults. Then you head out for a short walk across a field down to the lake, to see a lovely recreation viking longboat on the water - really brought it to life. And finally into a concrete bunker where the real remains of the longship lie - a dark, slightly creepy experience for small kids but fascinating too! The ship itself is just the bare bones, don't expect to see a fully functional ship - but it is really evocative of the history of the area. Well worth a visit. We then drove another half an hour to the coast around Nordskov, where we spent a happy few hours in the most beautiful, remote, wild nature. A great day out!Written August 20, 2019
- The museum is like travelling back into the old days. You can sit in all furnitures and touch everything. It's very nostalgic to walk through the museum. However its very fast to complete the museum and it takes under 1 hour, sadly.
Its cheap though.Written November 8, 2023
- Since H.C Andersen was born is Odense you should visit his house. From here also a tour through the city starts following the footsteps on the ground. We received the (free) guide for this in front of the Odense city hall.Written August 5, 2023
- Visited this charming park when in Odense in late June, and found it really great. Not greatly manicured which is a good thing, with quite a few ‘wilder’ spots, plenty of good walking paths, and of course beautiful sculptures of H.C.Andersen characters. Also seemed like a good spot for a picnic. You can hire a paddle-boat, jump onboard a boat (not frequent) and/or bring your own kayak (saw plenty of people do that). Mind you, the paddle boats seemed a bit dirty inside from water +mud/dust (might need to wipe it if you don’t want that on your clothing). All in all, we really enjoyed our time here, a real oasis away from the noise of the city.Written July 24, 2023
- Lovely place with great atmosphere and loads of cool stuff. Best place for unique souvenirs or random treasures for cheap and affordable prices.Written July 4, 2017
- We didn't have enough time to do this museum full justice. There is an exhibit in the main modern building that is meant to be a quick look at Odense through the ages. The rest of the museum is several old buildings with different purposes - children's museum, life in the Middle Ages, puppet workshop, homes.
We went outside for the old buildings first and had only 30 minutes or so left to view the exhibition in the modern building. That was not enough time. It was really quite good with many artifacts, old films, and written commentary. I wish I had known how good this museum was - we stumbled on it only because it was near our hotel. I hope for a next time re-visit!Written July 23, 2023
- Had an awesome time. First room you're walking among the animals for a closer look. The newer exhibitions show the reptiles on their terms. Some of the older exhibitions appear somewhat small, though.Written August 19, 2017
