East of the Sun and West of the Moon


This exhibition shows a selection of Erik Werenskiold's and Theodor Kittelsen's drawings that were made for the Norwegian folk tales almost 150 years ago. Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe collected and wrote down these fairy tales based on oral storytelling tradition.

In this tour you will hear stories of the room, the artists and their art works.

The exhibition is specially adapted for children and families. Here you meet Askeladden, princesses, scary trolls and adventurous animals.
