The museum take all precautions for a safe visit for all our gusts.


The daily program will be reduced this year and Sigrid Undset’s home will, due to Covid-19 safety precautions, not be open for visitors. The museum is still worth a visit!

Hosts in the garden

Meet our knowledgeable hosts in Sigrid Undset’s garden, they gladly tell about the author’s life.

A walk in the garden is in itself a great experience. The garden is planned and shaped by Sigrid Undset herself, and reconstructed the way is was in the midst of the 1930s. You will find perennials, fruit trees, herbs, stairways, stone walls and gravel walks. In some parts the grass grows freely to make a variety of plants and flowers flourish there.


Inside the guest house you will find the exhibition «Sigrid Undset’s travels» that gives an exciting insight into her travels through life.

Museum shop

Inside the visitor center you will find the museum shop. You can buy books by Sigrid Undset, gift articles and ceramic jars not unlike  those inside the author’s home.
