Welcome to open house at Villa Stenersen every Sunday this summer! 
The guided tour at 2:00 pm is in English

Villa Stenersen was designed by architect Arne Korsmo, and is considered one of the most significant buildings within Norwegian functionalism.  
The house is one of Korsmos most famous works, and was drawn on commission from the art collector Rolf E. Stenersen in 1937-1939. The villa is protected by the National Heritage Board, and a gradual restoration of the house back to original colors and materials is underway. 

Feel free to stop by to play in the garden as well! 

Free entrance

Nasjonalmuseet is following government guidelines to make it safe to visit Villa Stenersen:

  • Max. 12 people inside the Villa at the same time 
  • Visitors must keep at least one meter distance from each other and from our employees 
  • If there is a queue, we ask our visitors to queue outside with necessary distance between each other

Wayfinding to Villa Stenersen

T-bane line 1 (Frognerseteren) to Vinderen or line 2 (Østerås) eller line 3 (Kolsås) to Borgen stasjon. The villa is a 10 min walk from both Vinderen and Borgen stasjon. The villa is located at the top of a small driveway accessed from Tuengen allé. NB: It is not possible to access the villa via Borgenveien.
