Overview

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 architectural environments in the Art Nouveau style. Jugendstilsenteret offers insight into this style by means of authentic interiors and objects as well as temporary exhibitions. We also work with documentation, education and consulting. KUBE is the art museum in the county of Møre og Romsdal and is located in the former branch office building of Norges Bank (1906) in central Ålesund. Through a diverse programme of exhibitions and public activities, the museum aims to promote interest in and knowledge of visual arts, applied art, design and architecture. KUBE develops and manages an art collection focused on artworks and artists with connections to the region. To enter the museum shop and café you don't need a ticket .

The multi-media presentation on the 1904 Alesund fire and the rebuilding of the town is excellent and, for us, was worth the price of admission. However, the rest of the museum is poorly laid out and most of the signage is only in Norwegian. Visitors...More

Just go there and visit this museum and you will learn about the fire of the previous buildings. There is a time machine that takes you back in time about the fire.

Not a big museum, but an interesting variety of art nouveau items on show, and the 'time machine' gives you a narrative about the fire and rebuilding of the town (you may need to be a bit patient waiting in between showings, and be aware...More

The place, and the surrounding buildings are a good place for photos. Dont miss the interesting details inside, with various cool gadgets and souvenirs. More than enough things to see and do here for several hours.

In one ticket you have two museums - art nouveau and art. They are both small but both are interesting and worth to visit! You can learn some very interesting things about Alesund and see some very nice paintings of ornulf ophdal

Great cafe. The beer, granola and pastries were amazing. Great place to stop when you come off the bus after hiking sukkertoppen, and close to boats.

We visited the Jugend-museum, as jugend was the one and only reason for visiting Ålesund. Beautiful building, interesting exhibitions. The "time machine" of the museum is a picture show that takes visitors in the middle of 1904. Nice idea, but it should be arranged so...More
