The Art Nouveau Centre was opened by HM Queen Sonja of Norway on 6 June 2003, and is a national centre for Art Nouveau/ Jugendstil. The museum occupies the listed Svaneapoteket pharmacy building, right in the heart of Aalesund. Much of the original interior of the building has been preserved and restored. The museum has permanent and temporary exhibitions spread over three floors. Exhibits include a broad selection of Norwegian art nouveau objects, from advertising to jewellery, in addition to several multi-media shows.The Art Nouveau Centre has a gift shop and a cafe, where you can enjoy a nice slice of cake and a cup of coffee.

The place, and the surrounding buildings are a good place for photos. Dont miss the interesting details inside, with various cool gadgets and souvenirs. More than enough things to see and do here for several hours.

In one ticket you have two museums - art nouveau and art. They are both small but both are interesting and worth to visit! You can learn some very interesting things about Alesund and see some very nice paintings of ornulf ophdal

Great cafe. The beer, granola and pastries were amazing. Great place to stop when you come off the bus after hiking sukkertoppen, and close to boats.

A very pleasant and welcoming place in downtown Alesund. On 3 floors there ist an impressive exhibition with examples of the Norwegian Jugendstil and information on the reconstruction of the town in 1905. Absolutely worthwhile a visit.

If the most striking thing about Alesund is its Art Nouveau architecture, then the splendid Jugendstilsenteret is the launching pad for understanding why and how it got that way. With one of the best, and most innovative, introductory presentations I have ever seen, guests are...More
