I absolutely love visiting Hven. I tell everyone who is traveling to Denmark or Southern Sweden to make the effort to get there. The Museum is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen and I have been in a lot of museums. The underground observatory is amazing, and when you listen to the narration, it is quite awe-inspiring.... More

Our guide, Martin, taught me everything I now know about the Danish Astronomer, Tycho Brahe. The short ferry ride to the island of Hven was pretty and the island itself is beautiful, perfect for a day of cycling. Lots of lovely panoramas to eat a picnic and just spend a peaceful relaxing day, assuming the weather is good.

A lovely museum about Tycho Brahe on the sleepy island of Hven. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the underground observatory that Tycho built in the 1500s. The observatory contains some of the original plinths from Tycho's time but has been rebuilt so you get a full experience of what the observatory was really like. Take a day on the... More

We took the ferry from Copenhagen to the idyllic island of Hven to visit this excellent museum at the site of one of the first true scientific academies for the systematic observation of the stars. Excellent exhibits on the accomplishments and history of great Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe. The guided tour is expensive if you book it yourself for just... More

We visited the museum given that it was in the town we decided to do a bike tour through. I was very please with the place and the little part of history that exists on that little island. Wonder place to stop and learn about how much Tycho Brahe contributed to science.

Many years ago they didn't charge so much to visit the museum, now the admission charge is too high for what is available to view

If you go to the island of Hven you really must go to this museum, it is great. Although it is small it is packed with great things to look at and informative information. The English is usually after the other languages. The museum is housed in a beautiful old church. Outside the church are some gardens with herbs, flowers... More

The island of Hven is beautiful on a sunny day and the museum itself is a pleasant walk from the pier. Whether you have ever heard of Tycho Brahe or not, you will find this museum to be very interesting. He was the greatest observational astronomer before the discovery of the telescope and the island was given to him as... More
