Being a big theatre buff, I was looking forward to visiting the Ibsen Museum on my trip to Oslo. We took a taxi and pulled up to find a "Closed" sign. They are renovating it and it is not scheduled to reopen until 2021 :(

I didn't know too lot about Ibsen, but this museum makes every effort to change this! Worth every second.

Ibsen is such a giant and representative of Norway that it's well worth a tour of this small museum (formerly his home). Only a small gallery is available for museum admission alone, so pay for the group tour.

This museum provides two levels. The first one is about artifacts and Ibsen's life and creation. The second one is about visiting the flat of Ibsen's family. The visit of the private spaces is guided and regular every hour (11:00 - 17:00 or 18:00). It is the very interesting place. The guide was very pleasant. I can recommend.

The apartment was interesting to visit. The guide made the history alive.
The exhibition was a little fragmentary. The movie emphasized mostly small glimpses of Ibsen's litterary work. I would have preferred a straightforward biography of Ibsens's life.
Look for more reviews by MulleEllum.

Ibsen wrote some of the greatest plays and as the guide on this tour told us, he is second only to Shakespeare in terms of productions. The exhibition is excellent but it is absolutely worth while taking one of the guided tours upstairs to the large apartment that Ibsen and his wife Susannah lived in for the last 11 year of his life. The insight into his daily work routines as well as seeing the original study that he worked in, is fascinating. The tour takes about 45 minutes and the guide was knowledgable and happy to answer questions.

What a must see experience in Oslo. The museum has two spaces, one which outlines Ibsen’s life with actual things like clothes and programmes and original books. The phenomenal experience was ticket seller and tour guide Beathe. What a passionate person who was warm and welcoming and who shared some interesting stories about Ibsen that I hadn’t even heard about. What made this such a great experience was how the various rooms were brought to life by her explanations, stories and highlighting of objects or furniture that had a significant story. A true highlight to the visit to Oslo.

I went on the guided tour of Ibsen's last home in Oslo. The tour guide Jasmine was very well-read on all matters concerning Ibsen's life and drew examples from the modern day in her explanation of each different rooms of Ibsen's apartment. It is worth the visit.

The tour was about 30 minutes, and the exhibits didn't take long. It was nice to see, but the exhibits were more a collection of mementos. After we did the "Ibsen walk" from the museum to the Grand Cafe.

A small museum but interesting all the same. You must attend the guided tour that actually takes you through Ibsen's apartment. The guide was excellent and she filled in much of the background information. I would only rate the museum 4 stars without the guided tour.
