Fra museumsbutikken på Bjerkebæk Sigrid Undsets hjem

Museum Shop

The museum shop at Bjerkebæk is a specialist bookshop, selling books by and about Sigrid Undset. In addition we also sell goods that Sigrid Undset enjoyed, such as filigree brooches, porcelain pots, tea, spices, lotions and soaps. 

“Her world is made up of books, sagas, legends, all history recorded during time, the people, the lineage, earth’s and heaven’s. This is where she lives” Nini Roll Anker wrote about Sigrid Undset.

Sigrid Undset became obsessed by a passion to collect, buy and own books at an early age.
