KIRSTEN FLAGSTAD MEMORIALL COLLECTION

Kirsten Flagstad, Norway's world famous opera star, was born in Strandsstuen in Hamar. The house, Hamar's oldest, has been converted into a museum to commemorate "the voice of the century". The collection includes family mementoes, objects given by friends and admirers, and Kirsten Flagstad's own photo-album and scrap-books. The Metropolitan Opera in New York have donated several of her original stage costumes which are now on permanent display here. The museum is in Kirkebakken, opposite the main church, and is open from mid-May to mid-August.
