Lovely view of the lake and an attractive and comfortable home. The Troll trees line the drive into the museum. Introduction in theatre is Grieg music with inspiring photos of Norway. Some steps and climbing to see everything. Momentos in museum are interesting.

Do take time to enjoy the concert. The pianist is a brilliant addition to the visit. The museum is small, so avoid the cruise ships when possible. The concert is spectacular either way. You can book a private concert or join one of the public performances.

Despite walking quite a way to find it (I'm sure we go off the tram too soon), it was well worth the visit. The museum (built in the grounds of Grieg's house) told the story of Grieg's life and also showed a video of Norway's stunning scenery set to his music. We were so impressed we bought the dvd in...

Knew nothing about Grieg going in so it was interesting learning about the man. Liked looking through the house and having docents there to answer questions. If you like his music, a must see.

A guided tour leaving from the Bergen Visitor Center to Troldhaugen, Grieg's home, was a memorable highlight of our week in Bergen. The special tour bus conveniently took us door-to-door which included a well done guided talk both as we traveled and then while seeing the small charming house itself. The setting of the house is on a beautiful peninsula... More

The summer home of Edvard Grieg and his wife Nina is a must for music lovers. The modest house is a traditional ornate timber villa in a natural woodland setting situated on a peninsula overlooking Nordås Lake. There is a small cabin on the shore where Grieg composed. The villa and cabin are furnished together with many photographs and memorabilia... More

You don't have to love classical music to enjoy this museum. Grieg's house sits on beautiful grounds that go down to the water where you can enjoy a nice walk in the woods and truly lovely scenery. The house is fresh and outdoorsy, with natural wood paneling in every room. The museum building/ticket booth/gift shop is small, with enough displays... More

I liked everything about this place. It is set in beautiful grounds with lots of history and Grieg was a very interesting person. We saw the piano concert and in those surroundings the music made real sense, even to me. If you are in Bergen you should go to this attraction.

I love classic music very much. One of my favourite piece is Grieg piano concerto. Naturally when I visited Bergen, Norway, Grieg Museum was a must place to go. I hurried to go there at 9 am when this museum opens. I was the first visitor that day. Everything at this small museum did not disappoint me. In particular, when... More

A tour of Bergen before visiting this lovely place, Grieg's house, now a museum. A small concert hall has been added with a large window looking down to the lake and the little house where Grieg composed. We were treated to an half hour piano recital, lovely finale to a 14 day cruise of Norway.
