About Bjerkebæk

Bjerkebæk is Sigrid Undset's home and poets' studio, just outside the center of Lillehammer. The residence opened as a museum in 2007, restored as it looked in the 1930s.

The history of Bjerkebæk

Bjerkebæk is made up of several buildings. “Røssum” and “Dalseg” were Sigrid Undset’s home, together with the “Gjestehuset” (guest house) - an outhouse in the garden. When Bjerkebæck was opened as a museum in 2007, the public building was also completed containing ticket sales, a museum shop, an auditorium and a café.
