Guided tour of the Ibsen museum
The Ibsen Museum is one of Grimstad’s most visited attractions. You get to experience the original pharmacy in which the young apothecary's assistant Henrik Ibsen worked, and also the room in which he wrote his first play, Catilina. Ibsen spent six formative years of his youth in Grimstad, and the museum tells stories about Ibsen in love, his friendships, and the “illegitimate” child.
We recommend combining a visit to the Ibsen Museum with a guided town walk exploring the other key Ibsen locations in Grimstad.
Minimum group size is 10 people, and the experience can be booked via Grimstad Tourist Office.
