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!
