Did you know that we lend out free audio guides both at the art museums and at Troldhaugen?

And that we have curated content for both children and adults?

Audio guides in both new and permanent exhibitions

We often offer audio guides to our changing exhibitions. Here you get access to a deep dive into selected works and you learn more about the artists.

We also have audio guides to the art museums' permanent exhibitions. At Rasmus Meyer, we have audio guides to over 60 works, in addition to a separate audio guide for children made for nine works.

Queer art stories in Rasmus Meyer

Rasmus Meyer's collections is the oldest permanent exhibition at Kode and a good place to start to challenge traditional art history.

No one owns the fact of how art can be perceived. How can art be interpreted with a new look?

Through 12 selected works of art in the collection, the audio guide Queer Art Stories explores this.

Sometimes queer interpretations are obvious at first glance. Other times, they are apparently completely absent. It all depends on the perspective and experiences with which we encounter the artworks.

The texts are written by Jakob Myklebust Huus and communicated by Amy Black Ndiaye.

Listen to Grieg

At Troldhaugen, we offer two outdoor walks for audio guides, one for adults and one for children.

Through eight stops in Troldhaugen's idyllic outdoor area, you will be served exciting stories about Nina and Edvard Grieg, as well as listening to selected music by the world-renowned composer.

There are several pieces of music to choose from, and walking around the area with "Morning Mood" and other well-known pieces on your ear is a great experience.

A separate route suitable for children between 4 and 10 years of age is also in place. Here, children can experience fun and exciting stories interspersed with small activities and music clips.
