About

Kittelsenhuset - An artist’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.
