OOn November 14, 2015, the day that was the famous author, social critic, and debater’s 108th birthday, her home opened up to the public and became a museum.

The flat in Vasastan in Stockholm has four rooms and a kitchen and was Astrid Lindgren’s home from 1941 until she died in 2002, i.e., more than 60 years. After that, her home was left almost untouched by her family until it became an open author home (not an official museum) where we can see what it looked like when she was alive. In the apartment, you can find many stories about both her professional and personal life.
