I had no idea how much of Grieg's music I knew and recognized. The museum itself is short and sweet, about 10 minor exhibits with background on Greig's life and background. The house itself was fun to tour, but the highlight for us was the grounds and getting a feel for how he composed and the impact on Norway's heritage.

What a lovely trip this was. Take the tram from Bergen to Hop (35kr each way per adult) then a 20 min brisk stroll and you're there. An exhibition and museum, although small it featured photos and personal effects and showed how loved and revered he was. A charming video showing views of Norway set his music had us spellbound....

We loved learning about Grieg and seeing his house. The permanent exhibit is very interesting and the surroundings peaceful. The house was interesting although there was no guided tour but the staff was knowledgable. The media production was recordings of some of Grieg's work illustrated by slides from all over Norway. A very peaceful interlude. Unfortunately, we were too early... More

An interesting visit to the famous composer's home. Toured the interior with an informative guide. Viewed the hut down by the lake and looked in at the information centre. There are beautiful views of the fjord from the garden.

I know, I know, I should know far more about Edvard Grieg and his musical contributions. But what I found impressive was the gorgeous spot where he looked out over the lake to gain inspiration while composing. He sat apart from his house, down a steep path to the water's edge where he had a small room to work in.... More

We went as part of a ship's tour, but didn't really know where we were going, as it was a 'highlights of Bergen' tour. I'm sure it was very interesting for classical music enthusiasts, but it held little fascination for us. Putting that aside, I think that the museum part of the site was very limited and was more of... More

It is a side trip, but, well worth it! We love classical music, and Grieg is the Norwegian master. It was nice to see where he got many of his inspirations. Heard wonderful excerpts of his music, by a superb pianist.

The surroundings were far more beautiful than the actual house but this was the best experience we have had in our visit to Bergen. There is a jetty down the hill with a beautiful view of the water and a little bench I would recommend walking the extra to see this area. It is worth getting a Bergen card which... More

Start with Grieg museum video presentation, to get to the Grieg mood. Exhibition interesting, but should be with bigger print and better lighting. Composer's villa charming, in all modesty. Gravesite of Edvard and Nina hard to reach and notice, but worth climbing. Easy to reach by Light Rail from Bergen centre, but be prepared to a pretty long walk (about... More
