Loved the Museum. We were guided there on a walking tour by Juliana who did a good job of explaining the Hanseatisk trading era out of Bergen.

Go on the guided tour that you can get from the Bryggen Museum. It covers the cost of 3 museums and the tour for a reasonable amount that is less than cost of admission to the 3 museums.

We went to the Hanseatic Museum as part of the Bryggen Walking Tour. The tour began at the Bryggens Museum and cost 120 NOK or roughy 20 USD. I believe they offer the tour in German, Norwegian, and 2 in English each day. It covered admission to the Bryggens Museum, the Hanseatic Assembly Rooms, and to the Hanseatic Museum, along... More

Amazing the conditions they used to live in, and the colour they used to try to brighten up the place...

well informed staff will teach you all about the day to day life of the Hansa employees, their living conditions and standard of life etc. Original furniture and fittings, maps, order books and a glimpse into how they lived-fantastic!

We went to both parts of the museum about the old German merchant ("Hanse") settlement, both the meeting houses where the cooking was done and those directly on the quay for the business offices and dwellings. Doing so really made the history of this charming city come alive for us-- particularly looking at the cooking and dining facilities and enclosed... More

Luckily, we went for the guided tour by the Bryggen Museum, which included the Hanseatic Museum. It was interesting, but really small and had limited signage. This meant that if not for the tour, it would be impossible to tell what the exhibits are about. It was just alright.

Worth a visit, but it doesn't take you through in a way that is logical and not enough info is given to allow you to understand. It's better to buy the guide book that explains the place until they get enough feedback to actually improve the visitor experience! Despites this, the place is very well conserved as it were about... More
