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

The museum is rather small. We got a great tour from the guide and she gave some explanations. The location where the museum and house is located is amazing.

This outing is a great way to learn more about Grieg,and it's a lovely way to see more than just Bergen. It's fairly easy to catch a train to the nearest village, then (on a good day) a nice walk to the actual house. (There are bus tours as well, available at TI, that take you to the home, but... More

I do and have always loved Edvard Grieg's music. When our cruise offered an excursion to visit his home and museum in Bergen, Norway, it was a simple choice to include as a major to do item. I was not disappointed. The home is undergoing renovation, but we still toured inside this charming old house at the edge of a... More

a lovely little museum showing Grieg's home in the outskirts of Bergen, a nice collection of details showing his rise from childhood to then end of his life - the setting is delightful and most tranquil, one can see why he chose the house. The staff are informed, welcoming and very helpful. A shame we weren't able to visit when... More

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!
