Just over the road from the castle you'll find Ibsens House. Henrik Ibsen was a prolific playwright and poet (Peer Gynt, A Doll's House etc) who is well known internationally. An hour or so here with the assistance of the fantastic guide will help you...More

Ibsen wrote some of the greatest plays and as the guide on this tour told us, he is second only to Shakespeare in terms of productions. The exhibition is excellent but it is absolutely worth while taking one of the guided tours upstairs to the...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.

The museum itself is not much but you should get the guided tour of the Ibsen’s house. I got very lucky and got a private tour just for myself which was really nice.
