The new Hans Christian Andersen-Museum is being built in Odense on the Danish fairy tale island of Fünen for 41 million euros.

Denmark’s world-famous poet Hans Christian Andersen was born in 1805 in Odense on the East Sea of Funen. A new adventure museum is now being built around the world of fairy tales. Start of construction is scheduled for spring 2017.

All in all, the adventure museum around the fairytale world of Hans Christian Andersen, who died in 1875, will cover 5,600 square meters, two thirds of which are underground. The museum’s wooden structure is inspired by local Danish building tradition, the historic half-timbered houses of Odenses.

The museum is embedded in a large “magical” garden. The contemporary brokerage concept for young and adult Andersen fans comes from the British exhibition designers Event Communications.
