Lovely place and you can really immerse yourself in the time and place where the Hanseatic org is still operating with the sight, smell and feel of the museum. Pity there is no English tour when we went but the receptionist was kind enough to lend us an English language book about the history of Hanseatic group.

The authentic (really old) interior of this museum is way cool. We arrived at opening time, so we were all alone on our visit. It was like stepping back in time -- the crooked walls, faded paint, and worn corners seemed to tell the story of the old merchants here. I liked it.

We were looking for a museum to go too so we checked out the description in the guide book. Admission was about $10 US per person. What an awesome building. This museum gives a history of the fishing in Bergen and the relationships with the Germans. You can see how these fishermen lived while they worked. Wonderful collection but they... More

I toured the Hanseatic Museum as a part of a packaged tour that I signed up for. In addition to the Hanseatic Museum, my ticket took me to three other attractions in Bergen. My guided tour was full of great information, and pointed out interesting aspects to the town that I would have missed otherwise.

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.
