An artist’s childhood home

The Kittelsen house: He was born on the second floor, and as a child he felt as if the distance between the kitchen stove and the living room window was infinite.
Welcome to the small house in the center of Kragerø, where the renowned fairytale illustrator Theodor Kittelsen was born in 1857.

Exhibition 2018:

This year we exhibit Kittelsen’s satire drawings from the series “Do Animals Have Soul?” along with some of his fabled drawings.
Throughout the summer we offer guided tours of the museum and the streets where Theodor played and ventured as a child.

Every Saturday we offer reading of fairytales for children.
