Ibsen was one of the most controversial figures of his time and his plays are still touring the world with great anticipation. In Oslo, you can explore his own real world at the Ibsen Museum. Beautifully located by the Royal Palace, it has been fully restored to its original state, including the study where he wrote his last two pieces. “The guided tours give visitors behind-the-scenes insight into his life, to use a theatrical term, and you can recognise many of the themes in the plays throughout his home,” says consultant Bergljot Øyrehagen Geist.
