"I always say that I am from Hamar - I am so proud of that, I still feel that Hamar is my town."

Kirsten Flagstad said this in an interview about Hamar in 1958, and everyone who visits the Kirsten Flagstad museum in Hamar will never doubt that Hamar was Kirstens home town.

Strandstuen is located at the top of our church street in Hamar - only a stones throw away from Hamar Cathedral church. And this lovely house is standing were it was rebuild long before Hamar became a city in 1849. Strandstuen is Hamars oldest house.

As international operastar, Kirsten Flagstad was mostly traveling, with hotelrooms as her home. Her needs for knowing her roots became bigger and she chose her birthplace, Hamar.

 We do not have regular tours at the Kirsten Flagstad museum, but a guided tour is possible with groups of 6 or less. This is because of the size of the house and the rooms. Do not hesitate to contact us if more information about this is desired.
