About

Kittelsenhuset - An artist’s childhood home

– Theodor Kittelsen’s childhood home

Kittelsenhuset is situated in the centre of Kragerø, among charming narrow streets and lanes. Theodor Kittelsen is a norwegian artist known for his interpretation of mythical creatures and fairytales.

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.
