After a major fire in 1904 in Alesund, the entire town was rebuilt in Art Nouveau style, which was prevalent at the time. Jugendstilsenteret and Kunstmuseet Kube seeks to preserve this architectural heritage. Architect Hagbarth Schytte-Berg designed the building, which was constructed between 1905 and 1907 and originally housed a pharmacy with the pharmacist's apartment above it. The exhibit consists of three floors of Norwegian Art Nouveau pieces and multimedia displays of craftsmanship and architecture. Stop for a slice of cake at the cafe or pick up an Art Nouveau-inspired souvenir at the gift shop.

  • The museum offers some nice exhibits, especially the dining room. The introduction through a time machine provides good information but the screens are very small and it looks a little bit outdated...

  • Good exhibition of modern art and art nouveau. There was a contemporary art exhibition in the nearby building, included with the same ticket (90kr). Highly recommended
  • A fabulous museum and modern art gallery combined. The wallpaper alone is amazing and the stories behind the exhibits are interesting - finding a link to Japan in an Art Nouveau apartment in Ålesund was not something I had expected.
