Strindbergsmuseet review Rate it

August Strindberg moved into an apartment in the Blå Tornet (Blue Tower) in 1908; it was his last home and is now a museum. Much of it is taken up with temporary exhibits on Strindberg as a writer, dramatist, photographer and painter, but his tiny apartment is the main reason for visiting. An air of reverence dominates: you have to put whiteslippers on over your shoes to protect the floor, and his bedroom, study and sitting room are preserved as they were at the time of his death, his pens still neatly lined up on his writing desk. It's an atmospheric and moving place: you can just imagine the ailing playwright standing on the balcony to greet a procession of well-wishers on his last birthday, 22 January 1912. He died just a few months later, on 14 May, aged 63.
