From Saturday, June 12, the public will be able to visit the house where the Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen was born.
The birthplace itself is a skipper’s house from 1858, which is located close to Fredrikstad. The house opens along with a new accompanying exhibition about Amundsen’s life and discoveries.
In the skipper’s house, which is called Tomta, a guided tour will be given once an hour throughout the day, the Roald Amundsen Foundation’s birthplace wrote in a press release.
The exhibition has been established in collaboration with the Fram Museum and contains several hitherto unknown images of the explorer.
