The museum is nice but even nicer is the cafe with it's fresh baked waffles. The museum is situated on a small hill and next to the botanical garden which is good for a walk.

Interesting musical instruments, plus a delightful little room to retreat to and listen to clips of various pieces of music. Set in gardens, largely under refurbishment when we were there. A good shop, cafe and concert hall all set in old farm buildings. Overall, one for afficionados. Too far to walk from the town centre; be warned, the return bus... More

I don't even know how to start this review, because Ringve Museum has it all... great permanent and temporary exhibitions, a rich history it proudly boasts, amazing personnel, exuberant colours, design, and sounds, attention to details, an incredible view over the fjord... and the list can go on and on. You can easily spend 2-4 hours here. And you will... More

The museum is away from city center so we took a taxi but bus goes there too. The museum is small so one can tour it with self guided tour recorder. There was a guide but only take group and at allocated time. One can listen to music played by different instruments. There has been renovations in the museum which... More

Ringve Manor has so many stories to tell; of Viking settlemets, of the mighty Wessel family who lived there in the 1600s and 1700s, the lovely Gardens surrounding it and so on. But what really takes you is the story you'll hear from the guides about Victoria Bachke, the lady who devoted her life to collecting musical instruments, which led... More

We bought a 24-hour bus pass at the tourist info place. It was a pleasant ride out to the Museum. We did not tour the surrounding gardens, which I regret. The tour was interesting. The tour guide played short pieces on various instruments, which was more than worth the tour ticket. The antique instrument collection was also thought-provoking.

Just do it. It far exceeded our expectations! Take the guided tour of the Manor museum to hear these old instruments being played! Fairly easy to get there by bus 3 or 4.

Fascinated by this collection of ancient and weird musical instruments. The guides are music students and very capable of playing all the instruments that they talk about in the tour. That way we got hear the instruments. It would not have made sense without the demos. The violin makers workshop show the patterns, types of wood used to make various... More

Many old musical instrument. Guiding by musical students who also play the instrument. Located in an old mansion a littel bit outside the city center. If you are interested in music insturments and like classical music, this is a must.
