Entrance to the Museum, The Childhood Home and The Tinderbox is free all day on Hans Christian Andersen's birthday and everybody is welcome.
It is a tradition to celebrate the birthday in Hans Christian Andersens house, and during the ceremony the most important event is to award the scholarship "H. C. Andersens Hjælp" to a hard working schoolboy. The scholarship was instituted by the poet himself and has been awarded on this day since 1878.
At the same time the "H. C. Andersen foundation" awards a similar scholarship to a hard working schoolgirl according to the same conditions.
