The Tinderbox (Børnekulturhuset Fyrtøjet ) is located next to H.C.Andersen’s museum and as we had the city pass we walked in for free just to check it out.

It is a nice place ONLY if you are a kid though, obviously the children that don’t care about information about the author will love the place where they can run, dance and play! Here they can listen a staff member telling the fairytales, they can wear costumes and sometimes they can take part in some of the fairytales which is great considering the fact that the children can actively participate in the dramatization of the tales. By the way the main theme changes every year so the local children find something different each time (Nightingale, Little Mermaid, Thumbelina etc).

There is also an area where they can paint and play again using their imagination and creativity.

We just took some pictures of the colorful interior, we saw the tired parents just waiting at the corner (bore to death) so after 10’ we decided to go somewhere else :)

It is open daily 10.00-17.00
The entrance fee is 85DKK or free with the city pass
