Overview
More
The building was built as a private residence in 1826 by Johannes Nicolai von Klöcker. It is built in an empire style and clearly influenced by the building style of Copenhagen. Here are furniture from the 1800s. The parts of the house in the back are from the 1600s. The house was privately owned until 1982, when it was taken over by Stiftelsen Klöckers Hus - a local philanthropic organisation. Today this building is a museum displaying how a well-off family lived at the time. There is a living room, dining room, office and kitchen, and a wash-house with a baking oven. Part of the museum displays the home of the sailor, a small apartment in the back of the building, where a sailor lived with his family. In Klöckers Hus you can also find the old village shop with interiors from the last century. Here it is still possible to buy sugar candy, oldfashioned candy, homemade jam, local historical magazines, and postcards with pictures from old Arendal etc. The house landau, which has transported royalty visiting Arendal in the 1900s, is in the stable.

The museum is ok, a bit cramped but lots to see. Not wheel chair friendly. Has terrible opening hours. But worth a peek.

Arandel is a picturesque small coastal town in Norway. We visited it while on a cruise of Norway’s towns and fjords in April 2016. Klöckers Hus was the home of a well-off family and is now run as a museum depicting how people lived here...More
