I was not expecting the excellent guided tour [in English] I received. The information was interesting. There are a few hands-on parts of the tour that are very fun. The guided tours some times get a little backed up. There isn't much you can do about that as the building gets crowded. This museum is a fun add-on while you're... More

Housed in a very old building, the museum has lots to offer in terms of tools and furnishing, with a great deal of written information on the walls, explaining its fascinating history. Take your time and read, as you'll find out lots about the trade taking place in medieval times.

We visited the museum after walking round Bryggen and we're glad we did it in that order as the museum helped to build on the picture we had built up walking round the area. The museum was well laid out although there were lots of stairs to climb to cover the three floors. The exhibits were well displayed with good... More

An intact house with original furnishings used by German merchants trading in dried fish. Directly on the harbor. Worth the time and price to visit.

Excellent museum in one of the actual Hansa warehouse/residences. Three storeys of displays and rooms, very low light so extremely atmospheric. 70 kroner fee - not included in the Bergen card. Puts everything about Bergen into context.

I just love this museum. It is not the larges, nor the most modern, but it is authentic. Everytime I visit, I just learn something new about the old times in Bergen and Northen Europe. The museum is located downtown Bergen and is a must for those who are interested in how the Hansa shippers lived and worked. To get... More

The Hanseatic Museum is directly on the Bryggen in Bergen. It's front and center to the harbor. It tells the story of living conditions of the German traders who lived in this area. The best part of the museum is that you get a true idea living conditions of these traders who once lived in this area. However the presentation... More
