The Karen Blixen Museum reviews
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.
