The Apartment

Nedre Strandgate 17

08. May 1985 - 31. Dec 2019

At Nedre Strandgate 17 we have recreated an apartment as it may have appeared in the early 1900s when a merchant’s family or shipping owner lived there. It is furnished with a parlour, dining room, study, and kitchen with a pantry.


Through the windows there is a view across the road to the terraced gardens that originally belonged to the property Nedre Strandgate 17 & 19. These gardens would have been planted with flowerbeds, decorative shrubs and berry bushes, and several of them also had summer houses/garden pavilions. In the street below the gardens is the Groom Well. It was named after the firm Groom & Son who ran a business exporting lobster to England from Nedre Strandgate 17.
