Ibsen Museum, immersion into the life of the famous playwright

Steeped in history, the Ibsen Museum is partly located in the apartment where the playwright lived the last 11 years of his life.

The Ibsen house, as it may currently be seen, was established in 1990 after a Norwegian actor purchased the author's apartment. He decided to open it to the public and, thanks to the Ibsen family, was able to put the furniture back in place. You may be seized by the strange feeling of being in the shadow of the famous writer, as the place has been restored with rigorous respect for authenticity.

It is a wonderful opportunity to delve into the masterly world of the Norwegian author. Born in 1828, he came to prominence through plays like A Doll's House and Hedda Gabler, two oppressive and distinct dramas.

Even today, his plays are regularly performed in packed theatres around the world. After your visit, you will also be able to follow in the footsteps of the playwright during a walk in the city, which will take you on the actual Henrik Ibsen Street, right through to the Grand Café, where the author liked to drink schnapps. The visit takes you on a charming journey back in time and is ideal for literature lovers.
