In Denmark, the museum lies in Rungsted, at the home where Karen Blixen was born in 1885 and died in 1962.

Karen Blixen also wrote under the pseudonym, Isak Dinesen and under this name she is best known for the title, Seven Gothic Tales. She was well-respected by authors such as Ernest Hemingway and Truman Capote.
