Fodor's Review

Famed Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen, known for A Doll's House, Ghosts, and Peer Gynt, among other classic plays, spent his final years here, in the apartment on the second floor, until his death in 1906. Every morning Ibsen's wife, Suzannah, would encourage the literary legend to write before allowing him to head off to the Grand Café to read foreign newspapers and have a tankard of beer. His study gives some striking glimpses into his psyche. Huge, intense portraits of Ibsen and his Swedish archrival, August Strindberg, face each other there. The guided tours, mandatory if you want to see his apartment, are run by well-versed and entertaining Ibsen scholars. They are run on the hour, with the last one an hour before closing. After the tour, you can visit the museum's exhibition of Ibsen's drawings and paintings and some of the writing he did for magazines.
