It is unbelievable that everything in the old wooden warehouse/fishermen boarding home appears to be unchanged in hundreds of years. You get the feeling the inhabitants just left. A house museum at its best. A must do for history lovers and the curious.

This is an authentic warehouse and home for the famous hanseatiske traders from Germany who occupied the wharf of Bergen for 400 years. This is old wood that squeeks when you climb up the stairs to the aprentices bedrooms. You can still smell the dry cod. Learn about the strange live of these yong men who had to live in... More

Didn't realise how extensive the hanaeactic league was at all until came to bergen. This museum is a good introduction -for example with an impressive collection of seals from many of the cities involved but upstairs on the brygge is not much refuge from the cold on a winters day as no heat! Finding second part was a but of... More

As we visited it in the winter, we certainly experienced how dark and cold a medieval building would be, this certainly made the visit atmospheric. Very informative: I now only have another 196 Hansiatic cities to visit!

Winter gives you a big advantage to imagine, how the aprentices been living here, in dark, cold, sleeping in „sleeping lockers" to keep the warmet temperature thera - and sharing the "bed" with colleagues to keep the place warm aroundf the whole day.

Very interesting museum painting a good picture of Bryggen, and a general section of Norwegian history. Information in English, Norwegian and German (as in much of Norway).

I loved this entire museum and I loved how they've preserved everything. It was so interesting to see the wall paintings faded and worn, the beds, the set up, and learn more of the history behind what life in Bergen was like. I recommend about an hour here, maybe a little less.

Small museum set in a historical merchant house. Each room describes an aspect of the merchants' life in old Bergen. Very interesting

This is a great museum to learn about the history of Bergen and Norway in a fun way. You walk through an old fishing industry building and get to experience life at that time in Bergen. The text and exhibits also teach you about the history of Norway as a whole and how the Hanseatic league played a role in... More

A museum reflecting the life of a past Bergen This museum is extremley well set out whilst being informative. I could also feel the cold and despair of those living as apprentices in houses not allowed heat or light in those bygone days
