The Ibsenmuseet was founded in 1990. This is the home of Henrik Ibsen, who was a playwright. It is located near the Palace of Henrik Ibsen’s gate 26 in the city of Oslo in Norway. The plays that were written by Ibsen are performed on stages throughout the world. However, only in Ibsen’s gate is it possible to learn more about the writer. It was in this home where he lived out the last years of his life and wrote his final works there.
There has been an extensive amount of work that has gone into recreating the playwright’s home. Since 2006, a substantial amount of financial support, combined with the goodwill of lenders and donors, and the efforts of skilled craftsman and expert museum personal, have helped to recreate the writer’s home. The furniture has all been reinstated and the walls, floors, surfaces, and ceilings are all reconstructed based on the archaeological building studies. These were supplemented with a number of historical sources. The curtains, drapes, and table cloths have all been rewoven in exact replicas.
When the writer passed away in 1914, the furniture was scattered and the home was dismantled. The Kristiania municipality received possession of the study and the bedroom and it was all deposited into the Norwegian Folk Museum. The county museum of Skien received the library and the Ibsen House Museum received the dining room. The rest of the furniture was retained by the family.
Kurt Wigert, who was an actor, rented the apartment in 1990 with the wish to make it open to the public. There were studies done on each room in order to recreate it as it once was. The Norwegian Folk Museum became responsible for operations in the year 1993 and the study was restored. However a lack of original artifacts combined with a limited number of resources resulted in this room being given only an adequate representation.
