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.

Not much else to see in the area. We did get a better sense of the time in which Grieg lived and the nationalistic context for his music.

We picked up the bus from the Tourist Information Centre which left at 11.30, for the quick ride out to Troldhaugen, Grieg's summer residence in Bergen. The cost of the tour was for the bus, entry to museum, a guided tour of the house, and the 30 minute piano recital. Good value indeed. You can get to Troldhaugen without taking... More

I went with my dad because he really wanted to go -- thought it might be stuffy or boring but turned out to be a really good museum. I wish we had done the little film before seeing the museum and the house -- it would have made more sense. I recognized much of his music but not him so... More

We visited here with an excursion from our cruise ship and included in our package was a visit into the house, the museum and to listen to a 30 minute piano recital. It was wonderful hearing the very talented pianist playing Grieg's music and looking out to the stunning scenery beyond. Unfortunately on our visit the heavens opened, but the... More

Loved our visit to Troldhaugen. Visiting out of season is great because it's quiet. The video in the modern museum area wasn't that special - we knew all the Grieg and the pictures were just of the (beautiful) countryside. Would have preferred a short film about Grieg's life and music (ah, well...). The museum is packed with interesting photos, memorabilia... More

We caught the DLR to Hop station. Cross the road and turn right ( back the way the train came) and you will see the sign to Troldgaugen. It's an easy 15-20 minute walk. The museum itself is worth the visit, but we really enjoyed the short film with music the most. The gardens are also very pretty. Instead of... More
