This museum really gives you a strong impression of how it was in the "old days" for the Hanseatic merchants, how they lived, and what challenges they faced. Very well done, in rooms that were actually used by those merchants.

For a visitor from Texas, where very little is more than 150 years old, this was a real treat. This is a remarkably preserved building that served as offices and residences for German merchants in the old Bryggen area. The residence area was particularly interesting, with little sleeping compartments stacked on top of one another. Original art work and documents... More

You can stroll around the Hanseatic area without a charge, but this museum really is well worth your time. You are taken through first in a guided tour (very good), then allowed to walk back through and take your time. The house is restored exactly as it was during the Hanseatic League-so be prepared for several steep flights of stairs... More

The Hanseatic museum is a small wooden building preserved as it was during the time period. There are three floors with multiple rooms, you can walk through on your own pace. The staircases are very steep and narrow, more like ladders. We went on a sunny, bright day, but I can only imagine how cold and gloomy this building would... More

Its nice that these old wooden structures were so well preserved. It's eerily beautiful and surreal that everything inside was just as it was when the houses were alive with its occupants. The tour guide was successful in invoking the mood of the time by his narration.

This museum is three floors of a Hanseatic merchant dwelling. The inside is a fascinating insight into life of these merchants complete with sleeping quarters, offices, kitchen area as well as art work. I would recommend taking a tour although there are some explanations if you decide on self guide. Their quarters must have very cold and dreary on those... More

Precious little jewel of a museum right on the waterfront facing the port of Bergen. The Hanseatic Museum is a step back into history of the organization that let the marketing of goods and services offered by the members. Stark and cold and lonesome must have been their life....on a rainy day like we had, you could feel the dankness... More
