Ibsen is such a giant and representative of Norway that it's well worth a tour of this small museum (formerly his home). Only a small gallery is available for museum admission alone, so pay for the group tour.
This museum provides two levels. The first one is about artifacts and Ibsen's life and creation. The second one is about visiting the flat of Ibsen's family. The visit of the private spaces is guided and regular every hour (11:00 - 17:00 or 18:00). It...More
The apartment was interesting to visit. The guide made the history alive.

Look for more reviews by MulleEllum.

A small museum but interesting all the same. You must attend the guided tour that actually takes you through Ibsen's apartment. The guide was excellent and she filled in much of the background information. I would only rate the museum 4 stars without the guided...More
Well, this is a pretty amazing place to see. His personal home with many exhibits which explain some of the complexities of his writings. Pretty warm in the summer, probably better in the spring or fall.
