An ode to Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen is the one of the most famous and best-read authors in the world, universally renowned for his wonderful fairy tales. Now his stories become the cornerstone of an innovative museum.

The first of its kind in the world, the new H.C. Andersen House tells us not about the life and times of Hans Christian Andersen, the author. It describes our time. The exhibition is all about you and me. H.C. Andersen’s House is not about Hans Christian Andersen – but it speaks as he speaks to us.

Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales are just as vibrant and relevant today as they were in the 1800s when he wrote them.

H.C. Andersen’s House

Henrik Lübker

“H.C. Andersen’s House is not about Hans Christian Andersen – but it speaks as he speaks to us.”

A symposium of experiences

But what is inside the house? And how will you become part of the fairytale?

Soon you can read more about the experience here,
although we cannot disclose it all…


You best make sure to get a ticket !


Twelve artists from all over the world are behind the exhibitions in the new H.C. Andersen’s House. It will be a complete artistic experience in which architecture, art, design, light, sound and a stream of images will create new encounters between each visitor and Andersen’s fairytales, which will melt together to form a coherent experience.

The exhibitions are developed by H. C. Andersen’s House and the various artists in collaboration with the British design agency Event Communications.
