I always was a fan of Grieg and his music, and I love him even more now that I know his Great Grandfather emigrated to Norway from Scotland (and changed the spelling from Greig to Grieg so the locals could pronounce it!). The museum building it great, lots of pictures and lots of information. The house is charming, well maintained... More

Lovely. I was fortunate to catch a concert for children that day. the house and museum was well maintained and the staff very helpful. English help was available and the tour was conducted in both English and Norwegian.

This was part of Cosmos tour to Bergen, Norway. Troldhaugen was the home of Edvard Grieg and his family. The small estate lies just outside the city of Bergen on landscaped grounds that roll gently down to the water in an area that is surprisingly peaceful and secluded. Grieg's composing cottage is still there and a small museum and concert... More

Edward Grieg house is a very beautiful place. Surrounded by trees, flowers looks like from fairytale. Inside you can find a lot of things, which Edward Grieg used, with his famous piano. Near there is also concert hall, where is possible to listen piano concerts, of course with Grieg music. Must see it!

Interesting museum. His hom was under renovation. Beautiful views of the lake. There was a room with a video accompanied by his musical masterpieces.

This is one of the prides of Bergen. Named after one of the most renowned personalities of Bergen, this museum should be a must place to visit while in Bergen.

Go for the view that inspired this brilliant composer. Listen to the interpretation of the musicians who have studied this unique master. If you're familiar with some of the music you'll be pleasantly surprised by a new sound and rhythm. If you're not familiar with any of the music you'll be wonderfully entertained by a vast array of joy, sorrow,... More

Beautiful place, lots of interesting things about this great composer. It's easy to see how the place inspired magnificent music. This place has a nice shop but what's most important is you can learn about the man and his family. Very strongly recommended.

The grounds of Grieg's House and studio are wonderfully peaceful and beautiful, with a spectacular view of a fjord. We attended a piano recital in the small concert Hall that has the same fjord view. Fantastic!!
