Overview
More
The dramatist Henrik Ibsen lived on the small farm of Venstop from the age of 7 to 15. His childhood home is today, a modern museum devoted to the writer. It is a museum for those who want something out of the ordinary. Here, the writings of Ibsen are presented through the media of film, pictures, talking-heads and holograms. In the depths of the barn, you may enter Ibsen's top hat, allowing you to experience the genius of this writer's brain! You can enjoy all this within the confines of delightful listed buildings and a pleasant country garden.

Great tour of where Ibsen lived as a child and where many ideas came from for his future plays and poems. The attic must have been scary for a child! Tour guide was excellent.

This beautifully situated farm just outside Skien is the childhood home of Mr. Henrik Ibsen, where he and his family lived after his father's bankruptcy and major social downfall. Here, in the attic, we probably find the original theatrical scenery of one of his most...More
