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 tour was about 30 minutes, and the exhibits didn't take long. It was nice to see, but the exhibits were more a collection of mementos. After we did the "Ibsen walk" from the museum to the Grand Cafe.

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.
