This is such a strange museum but it’s got such a great story as the only building in town that didn’t burn down in the great fire of Alesund. It’s run by very friendly people who tell the tale well, even taking the religious element out, it still leaves a remarkable story.

Are you a sceptic or a believer? This is a house that tells and museum with an amazing story to tell. Go and hear what happened in the 1904 fire and how God changed Ålesund. If you can't go you can still read Psalm 91.

Thankfully, Ålesund isn’t a large city so our trip here didn’t mess up our plans for the day BUT it is only open on Sundays in August. We stopped by on a Friday afternoon and were disappointed that both the hours of operation posted on TripAdvisor and the actual house website are inaccurate.

It's an old little wooden house that was the only one in that whole area that survived a devastating fire of Ålesund in 1904.
There's a nice little museum inside where you can learn it's miraculous story, and a cosy cafe with local waffles and stuff.

An amazing story about the house that in a miracolous way survived the great fire in 1904 and av man's faith. You shouldn't miss this one.

We were visiting Alesund on a cruise, and came across this house by chance. It survived the great fire of 1904 that destroyed most of the town. The story is that the day before the fire, the owner had a visit from an angel, who told him that if he stayed in the house, it would be spared - he did, and it was, and it stands to this day!

It's now a Museum, with free entry, run by three lovely, friendly ladies, who made us very welcome - in fact, it felt like we had been invited into their home! They told us all about the house, and the people that had lived there. We had a nice cup of coffee, and could have had cakes and biscuits if we'd wanted. The ladies were knitting various articles for sale in the souvenir shop, to raise funds to maintain the building.

Altogether, a very pleasant experience - so nice to talk to genuine people, who weren't trying to sell you anything.

Well worth a visit - it's a bit of the beaten track, but it's only a few minutes' walk from the town centre, at the junction where Parkgata becomes Fjellgata, and crosses Grensegata.

It was a touching story and a beautiful place. The homemade cakes were extra delicious. The souvenirs were reasonably priced.

Very interesting story and incredible renovation of the old house from before the great fire in Ålesund. Fascinating to see the room where Anders Nord sat surrounded by the flames that did not destroy the house because of his promise to an angel who visited him the day before.

It was very interesting to hear the story about the fire that destroyed the town of Aalesund, all except for this house that remained.
