“Fantastic for kids!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

My wife loved it and so did the kids! They thought it was a lot of fun for kids 3 and 6. Lots of activities, face painting, drawing, role playing, and interesting exhibits around the H.C. Anderson theme.

We entered by using the Odense City Card. Not very well advertised, but worth getting the card.

Great for families!

“Childrens' Bliss”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

This is wonderful for young kids. The main area changes, but when we were there it was fashioned after The LIttle Mermaid. We only spent an hour because of plans, but easily could have stayed four hours. Dress up, crafts, art, face painting ... all kinds of things to amuse the younger set.

“Great entertainment for kids”
Reviewed March 3, 2010

This is the adventures of Hans Christian Andersen lived through a hands-on experience where you can dress up like the characters in his fairy tales, listen to the stories or just have a fun time. Be prepared to spend several hours and have tired kids afterwards.
