If you are interested in the playwright Ibsen, do visit his museum. Lots of material about his plays and books. It's also close to the Royal Palace so you can go there next.

Doesn't look all that much from the outside, but very interesting once you're inside. If I hadn't walked back past it when I visited the Royal Palace, I might have missed it. Glad I didn't.

This museum is very well organized especially if you are a fan of Ibsen. I wish they had had a brochure to take home with the various themes displayed within. There is not enough time to reflect during a holiday visit.
