Anatomigården in Juni 2007.

Anatomigården (also known as Brennerigården) is one of the few remaining houses in Oslo, Norway built with the timber framing method. It is located in the oldest area of Oslo city, where about 50% of the buildings were half-timbered in the middle of 18th century. This area is called Kvadraturen. The facades (brick walls) of the building are sanded and covered with layers of protective rock materials, so the timbers are only visible on the gables. The age is unknown, but the house is likely to be from the 18th century. It is conserved, like the adjacent Rådmannsgården. In the 19th century, the Faculty of Medicine of University of Oslo had its division of anatomy here - hence the name Anatomigården (which means "The Anatomy house"). The building served as a headquarters for this faculty until a new building was erected on the main UiO campus at Blindern.

Until 2003, the house was hired by Unge Kunstneres Samfund. The place in front of Anatomigården, which faces towards Christiania square, is a popular beer garden in summer.
