  • The place where Henrik Ibsen lived in his last eleven years of his life. The rooms where restored using Ibsen furniture and other contemporary pieces. Nice exhibition with his plays. 
  • Museum of the famous writer Henrik Ibsen. The House where Ibsen lived with his wife in Oslo here voosozdany interiors of the time, posted photos and documents 11 years of his career in the capital. However, the Museum in Grimstad, I liked more. Probably because Ibsen in Oslo was already aged and wrote more dramatic works, unlike the tales of the Outside. Hence the atmosphere.

  • The Museum is located near the Royal Palace in Central Oslo. Admit knowing about Ibsene, I had little idea about his work. Visiting the Museum a few fill this gap. You can feel the spirit of the time in authentic Interior, see things a writer, his drafts. The Ibsenu in Norway are treated with great reverence.

  • The people are friendly and the collection is intended to show you more about his life. Do pay the extra and get the guided tour to his flat.
  • Not very well designed. The exhibition lacks continuity and clarity while the content is quite simplified. The content of the tour was simplified to a banal degree. Leaves a slightly one dimensional impression of what was a complex man.
  • A small but complete overview of Ibsen's life, particularly his final years, when he lived in a generously-sized apartment at this location. If you're not familiar with his work, you can learn a lot here. It would be better to get at least an overview before going. That would contribute to your engagement. The museum seems newish and growing. They're trying to restore his apartment to its appearance during his time there. The tour--the only way to get in to the apartment--will definitely give you insight into the man. (Free with Oslo Pass)
  • Loved ibsen's house!
  • One of the most beautiful places I've visited. Ibsen's apartment is stunning!
