Best preserved art nouveau interior- sinuous staircase, dining room, displays of textiles, ceramics, furniture, posters. We watched the 14 minute multimedia story of the rebuilding of Alesund after the great fire. Must visit the museum shop and see the interior setting. The entrance ticketalso includes entry to Kube, situated just next door. See the art collection and multimedia presentations on arts, craft, design and architecture.

The house and furniture are well preserved and showcased. The movie on the Art Nouveau movement across Europe is very good in offering an historical and international representation of the movement. The movie is made of footage from the early 20th century which has great historical value but might be more difficult to follow for today's viewers. In the basement, the time machine and "movies" on the Alesund fire offer explanations on the fire and re-building that followed. These use more modern animation and are suitable for a younger or less patient audience. We also enjoyed the Kube visit, which is completely unrelated and presents contemporary creations. Overall, it is a great museum to understand the recent history of Alesund and its architectural style... with a contemporary art bonus!

Price includes both parts of exhibitions but would have preferred a price option for each part . Not sure what time machine had to do with Art Nouveau but was interesting to see how the town had to be rebuilt
I agree the place not that anglo friendly on signage but one of the attendants did show us round .Some lovely pieces but would have liked to see more paintings

As a lover of Art Nouveau I immediately wanted to visit here. We paid entry which got us access to a modern art gallery connected through the basement which I loved. The Art Nouveau collection was great and there was an exhibition of the local architects which was great too.

I thought the modern art gallery was great I had sent thought provoking pieces and was totally unpretentious.
