  • A very sweet and informative little museum with very nice and dedicated staff. The Restaurant had a very meager menu, unusual for Denmark, but also here the staff was very friendly.  more »
  • I love the place. And i had the chance to visit the house of Karen Blixen in Nairobi. What a story, the one of Karen Blixen. You need to read her story before you visit the place.  more »
  • We loved visiting Karen Blixen's house. We were at her farm in Nairobi before, and enjoyed visiting here now. The coffee and cake in the cafe are really nice as well.
  • So lovely home museum, my heart left there! I'll come back.
