Lovely information about Andersen's life, with dioramas and timelines as well as displays and copies of many of his works. Some of the models are a little creepy but on the whole it has not aged too badly, and it is really nice to see...More

So glad we took this tour. The walk itself took about 70 minutes, and Richard Karper [aka H.C. Andersen] just talked about the buildings we passed; the only building we entered was the Church. The real value of the tour was in his introduction to...More
