  • This is a quirky little museum perhaps just for aficionados. But you also get a guided tour of his last apartment which is excellent. Our guide was superb. Nice little shop. Couldn't resist a t shirt which says "HI" which are obviously his initials. There are also fabulous babygros. Don't miss it.
  • A tiny museum with a big soul. You can read quotes from Ibsen's plays and learn lots about his life and career. He was a deep thinker and this museum does a lot to showcase his troubles, concerns and motivations. You also learn about his time overseas, his family and his lovers. Really enjoyed it! Five stars!
