Visit Norway's oldest Ibsen-museum.

Henrik Ibsen came to Grimstad as a 15-year-old to work as an apprentice for apothecary Reimann. During the six intense years he lived in the town, he became an apothecary's assistant, a social critic and an author. With a newly published Catilina under his belt, he left town in 1850 determined to work with theatre.

The Ibsen-museum in Grimstad is the oldest one in Norway. In 2015 it has been restored, and it opens in June 2016 to celebrate 100 years!
