A great place for young kids. Plenty of costumes to put on, rooms with different themes and space to run around. My kids loved getting their face painted and painting in the brilliant arts and crafts workshop. Highly recommended as a 3-4 hours activity.

Children are normaly not very interresting in Museums but if you combine the visist with H.C. Andersens home I am sure it will pass. Childrens can spend hoers drssing in princess gowns or solders uniforms. Selling Ice cream or serving coffee or preparing food

All activities requires kids to be actively participating in experiencing the fairytales, life and art of Hans Christian Andersen. The art workshop was really enjoyable and with competent guidance. There is a chance to dress up in beautifully designed costumes and act our fairy tales...More
