Emanuel Vigeland, the less famous yet no less talented brother of the great Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland, turned his museum into his own mausoleum. It is one-of-a-kind experience walking inside this tomb and look at his paintings on the wall with the help of only candle light. It is in a quiet neighborhood of Oslo.
I find this a rather poetic take.
“These are the times that try men’s souls.” The words of Thomas Paine (1737-1809) are still relevant if not more relevant today. Come visit Thomas Paine Cottage Museum if you are in New Rochelle, NY. The last residence of the man influential in the American Revolution could inspire you.
