Hamsun museum in Grimstad

The opening of a Hamsun museum in Grimstad has been a topic of discussion since the early 2000s. In February 2017, Grimstad local authority set up a committee to look at the implications of such a development. The committee presented a feasibility study in July 2017 in which it recommended further work on the projected Hamsun museum in Storgaten 44. This feasibility study can be read in full here.
Grimstad local authority followed the committee’s recommendations, and a pilot project was unanimously approved. A pilot project committee was set up in 2018, and will publish its report in June 2019.
