Sigrid Undsets travels

Overview

Get to know Sigrid Undset through her travels around the world.

Get to know Sigrid Undset through her travels around the world.

Childhood

Eldest daughter Sigrid was initiated into the world of literature and history at an early stage by her parents. Through stories, maps and illustrated books she embarked upon her very first journeys.

Her life started off in her maternal grandfather’s house in Kalundborg, and from there she moved with her family from address to address in Kristiania until she as an adult set out upon a long, highly anticipated journey through Europe to Italy. She traveled in her father’s footsteps. Maybe she brought along her father’s elaborate book From Akershus to Acropolis.

Traveling

Renewal is the destination when you travel – you should collect material, too, but first and foremost you should be renewed, she wrote in one of her first travel letters. She wanted to travel light and carefree – without bringing too much baggage.

She sought out medieval cities and ruins. Churches, cathedrals and religious pilgrimage sites. Art and nature. She traveled in the East and she traveled in the West. Along the way she collected postcards. Album upon album she filled with unwritten postcards. Maybe she needed them for her own stories.

The second world war

The longest journey in both time and space was not voluntary. It was an escape. She traveled around the world as a refugee for five long years. Five years of war.

Exhibitions

The exhibition is presented in the guest house. With Sigrid Undset’s suitcase and hatboxes, tickets, travel guides and postcards, and with film, sounds and lighting we welcome our visitors into the universe of Sigrid Undset’s travels.

In 2019 The Foundation Lillehammer Museum celebrates that 100 years have passed since Sigrid Undset moved to Lillehammer, and Lillehammer art museum presents: To enclose oneself - in Sigrid Undset's house there are many rooms.
