Edvard Munch's House, is Åsgårdstrand's biggest attraction. It was here that Edvard Munch lived and found the inspiration for so many of his famous paintings. It was in 1889 that Edvard Munch (1863-1944) spent the first of many summers in Åsgårdstrand. In 1897 he bought a spartan fisherman's cottage built at the end of the 18th century.
