Get to know our four museums and three composers' homes
Lysverket has been home to works from our collection dating from the 15th to the 20th century, in addition to our collection of international modernism.
The building from 1938 is currently scheduled for refurbishment and will until then have selected temporary exhibitions at display.
This little jewel of a building from 1924 has its name from the collection assembled by businessman Rasmus Meyer. Across two floors, you wander through the golden age of Norwegian art history, from 1880 to 1905 and then on to 1920. You also find the world’s third largest Edvard Munch collection here.
Stenersen is the most recent of our four art museums, built in 1978. The museum got its name from collector and financier Rolf Stenersen. The first floor of the building shows temporary exhibitions, while on the ground floor you can have a look around Kode’s own bookshop.
Troldhaugen was the home of Norway's greatest composer Edvard Grieg and his wife Nina Grieg. The museum consists of the villa from 1885, the historic garden with the composer’s hut and the couple’s gravesite, in addition to the museum building itself. This is also the site for the beautiful Troldsalen where more than 400 concerts are performed every year, including daily lunch concerts during the summer season.
Siljustøl was the home of composer Harald Sæverud and his wife Marie Hvoslef. The museum was built in 1939, and in Sæverud’s study you will find his personal belongings and grand piano just as he left them when he died in 1992. Concerts are held in the hall at Siljustøl throughout the year.
Lysøen was the summer villa of composer and violinist Ole Bull and his family. The museum was built in 1872 and houses a collection of Ole Bull’s belongings and furniture. We host a series of concerts in the magnificent music hall, and Lysøen offers wonderful nature experiences for the whole family, with boat connections between Lysøen and Buena pier in the summer season.
