The museum and its surrounding gardens provide an authentic insight into the way of life of the 19th century, its atmosphere and style. During a visit to Bakkehuset one can have a visceral experience of one of the most central periods in Danish cultural history; the period that would become known as the Golden Age. In the Rahbeks’ time the house was a home to luminaries such as Hans Christian Andersen and many others. The 1st floor of the museum previously housed a residence for writers awarded through a scholarship, but today the visiting public can experience varying exhibitions which focus on art, culture and literature from both the modern era and the past.
