H.C. Andersen
Museum

Kom helt tæt på originalerne

H.C. Andersen Museum er et skatkammer fyldt af alt det, der udgjorde eventyrforfatterens liv og kunst. Her finder du alle de ægte og unikke genstande. Alle de ting han gemte, fordi de betød noget for ham, eller som er blevet gemt, fordi han betød noget for andre; manuskripterne, papirklippene, hans ejendele, hatten.
Kom bagom kunstneren og helt tæt på mennesket H.C. Andersen.

What can things tell us?

What stories do the authentic objects conceal? Stories about both tragedy and comedy perhaps? About immense fame and just as much loneliness? About love, wanderlust, and about clawing one’s way up? What do things say about us as people?
Explore the things and their story of how a boy born into abject poverty ended up being the world’s greatest fairy tale writer.

“The more you read Hans Christian Andersen’s stories, the more you marvel at how subtle he is. How wonderfully he works with the language, always getting the words to mean so incredibly much. In my opinion, without Andersen, our Danish language would neither look as it does, nor sound like it does.”
H. M. Queen Margrethe of Denmark

Explore a unique life’s work

Right back from the time when Hans Christian Andersen was a boy, long before he published his first fairy tales and became famous, people saved some of the things he did – as a keepsake. Today, the museum’s unique collection contains more than 32,000 items, many of which you can get right up close to at H.C. Andersen Museum. Together, they represent an entire life and life’s work.
