Jugendstilsenteret is located in the old Swan Pharmacy from 1907 and is both a museum and a national centre of Art Nouveau. The catastrophic fire of 1904 left the town of Ålesund in ashes. The rebuilding created one of Europe’s most characteristic...more

The staff is very friendly and the center itself offers both historical exhibition about architecture and so on, pluss more modern installation art in Kuben. I think it was time well spent. There is also a gift shop and a cafe.

The pharmacy buidling, which charges a small amount to see a few archtectural and historic items, as well as a video desribing the rebuilding of the town from fire, was interseting. Across the street the KUBE is a real-deal art-nouveau museum that is intersting, but...More

As others have described, you enter the museum through the original pharmacy which is now a cute gift shop. You can then either go through The Time Machine which is a clever presentation about the history of Alesund and the reconstruction after the devastating fire,...More

Art Deco was, really charming. The pharmacy, the Swan, was the oldest pharmacy in Norway, closed. Now it is a museum and stationary store. Kind of disappointing.

This Art Nouveau town was interesting to walk around. The Art Nouveau Centre, which was entered via a period reconstruction pharmacy, showed an interesting film from the period about the spread of Art Nouveau across Europe. However, we came away feeling underwhelmed and that there...More

Starting in the old pharmacy, which is itself a fascinating Art Deco installation, you experience an extremely well done “time machine” that takes you back to 1904 and the fire that devastated the city. Lots of Art Deco exhibits than to the Kube Art galley.
