Run under the management of the Norwegian Folk Museum (Norsk Folkemuseum), Oslo’s homage to the life of Norway’s most famous dramatist is located in the house that was occupied by Hendrik Ibsen (1828–1906) and his wife Suzanne for the last 11 years of his life.
Found in a luxurious apartment block in the middle of the city, the story of Ibsen’s life is told in two major exhibitions. As the most renowned playwright in the world after Shakespeare, there’s a comprehensive exhibition focusing on his personal life, featuring his clothes, writing implements and family photographs in the neighboring apartment.
Perhaps more impressive is Ibsen’s own apartment, which was lovingly restored with period furniture and many family possessions before being reopened in 2006 to mark the centenary of his death. Once scattered across Norway, his belongings and furniture have been carefully returned to the library, parlors and study where he wrote his last two plays. Throughout the suite of rooms, soft furnishings have been woven and wallpapers recreated to match Ibsen’s original décor, while oil paintings and chandeliers adorn the walls just as they did in his time.
