The Kirsten Flagstad Museum

The Kirsten Flagstad Museum is devoted to one of opera’s greatest stars, her life and career. The museum is situated in the house Strandstuen. This is where Kirsten Flagstad was born on 12 July 1895, and is also the oldest house in Hamar. The museum houses a vast collection of recordings made of Flagstad throughout her career, and the staff is more than willing to help you find the music you wish to listen to.

The Kirsten Flagstad Museum is also home to the Opera Hall of Fame that opened in 2013. This is a homage to the best opera singers in Norway, and a new representative of the Norwegian opera scene is included every year. In June there is an annual festival to celebrate Kirsten Flagstad.

The museum is open during the summer season, but guided tours can be arranged all year round.
