The Kirsten Flagstad Museum is established in the house where she was born

Kirsten Flagstad (1895-1962)  was called "the voice of the century" as well as "the world's greatest Wagnerian soprano". She had an exceptional stage career in the USA as well as in Norway. Kirsten Flagstad later became the first Director of the Norwegian Opera. The birthplace of Kirsten Flagstad was in Hamar. The Kirsten Flagstad Museum is established in the house where she was born, July 12, 1895, just off the church where she was baptized. The memorial collection was opened to the public in 1985, and the official opening was made by Norway's then Minister of Culture on Kirsten's 90th birthday.

The Museum encompasses family mementoes, a photo collection, original costumes from The Metropolitan Opera House i New York and a music room. Kirsten Flagstad Museum is located in "Strandstuen", the oldest building in Hamar. 

As an international opera star, Kirsten Flagstad spent much of her life traveling, with hotel rooms as her home. The greater the need to know that she had her roots somewhere. And as her place, she chose the birthplace of Hamar.
