Description

The Art Nouveau Centre in Ålesund documents the town's unique architectural history with the establishment of Art Nouveau architecture after the great Town Fire of 1904. Experience the fascinating and exciting history that is presented to you through a time machine and multi media shows that portrays the town before and after the fire. Take a stroll through the many rooms in the listed building known as "The Swan Pharmacy", and be mesmerized by the beautiful and authentic décor.

The Art Nouveau Centre has also got rooms with temporary exhibitions on loan from other museums. The Centre is a member of "Rèseau Art Nouveau Network", a European network of Art Nouveau cities, including among others Brussels, Glasgow, Barcelona, Nancy and Vienna.
