Adults rarely take fairy tales seriously, only children think that Ottoman really exists. And the world's most famous collection of fairy tales is undoubtedly "Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales", the ugly duckling, Thumbelina, the little girl who sold matches, are all immortal classics of human fairy tales. Andersen's position in the world of fairy tales is undoubtedly the sun that shines on everything.
Coming to Denmark, everyone wants to get a glimpse of Andersen's line-up. But Andersen left this world back in 1875, and only one Andersen Museum is preserved in Odense, Denmark, Andersen's hometown.
Andersen Museum was built in 1905, when the World War had not yet broken out, and mankind was speeding along in the industrial revolution, the year was the 100th anniversary of Andersen's birth, so the Danes decided to collect everything from Andersen and create this Andersen Museum, which has towered over us until today, and has a history of more than 100 years.
The core building of the Andersen Museum is a small cottage located in Odense Monkimolai Street, this building in fact, even Andersen himself do not remember, until after he became famous, Andersen found the house where he was born. People have placed all of Andersen's relics in this house to commemorate this most authoritative figure in fairy tales.
The Danish Andersen Museum, with a total of 18 small rooms, the entire memorial is like an introduction to Andersen's life. Twelve of these 18 small rooms are display rooms, all in chronological order, housing some of Andersen's manuscript works, as well as some sculptures and paintings related to Andersen.
Some of Andersen's household items are also preserved here in their original form. In fact, Andersen lived in this house for only a few years, and Andersen especially liked to travel, and his traveling clothes were only two suitcases, umbrellas, hats and walking sticks.
The next small room is filled with murals, library and video works related to Andersen. It is filled with translations of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales in various languages, in nearly 100 languages.
When visiting Denmark, the Andersen Museum is a niche attraction, but still fascinating.
