The 4 Kode museums are all included in one 100kr entry fee and are immediately adjacent each other. 1 is a design museum. Exhibit on Norwegian silversmithing plate and beautiful furniture were highlights. Much less so was room with ceramic plates. 2 is modern art museum which I didn't care for at all. 3 and 4 are complementary. Mostly mid/late... More

Your ticket pays for entry into 4 related art museums, for design, modern art, Norwegian art, and one other. We loved the design museum and the Munch exhibit in the Norwegian art facility. Modern art one did not do much for us, but personal taste. The Children's Art Museum in one of these 4 museums is a very interesting facility,... More

Bergen has many rainy days, and you should spend a couple of hours in a gallery that appeals to you on one of them.

If you have any extra time during your visit to Bergen, the Art Museum (KODE) is worth your time. The museum is walking distance from anywhere in Bergen and offers a nice collection of Norwegian artists. You may spend a pleasant hour or all day.

Branded as "KODE", the Bergen Art Museums provide four buildings (KODE 1, 2, 3 & 4) dedicated to various aspects of art and design. 100 Nok buys you entry to all the KODE buildings and exhibitions. We visited all buildings in a single day but the ticket is valid for two days if you prefer spreading it out. There is... More

Nice collection of Norwegian artists, museum not so large as to be overwhelming. Munch and Dahl were prominent. Pleasant way to spend a rainy morning.

Loved the Munch, in fact the range of art on view and a rare treat - work by Asger Jorn from the Cobra movement.

Still if Bergen isn't capable to compete with Oslo's galleries, you'd certainly be surprised with the collection KODE holds. Astonishing review of Astrup, Dahl and Munch (buildings 3 and 4). Worthiest museum in Bergen.

For those who already have some sort of interest in art. As far as my little perception of art goes there was little a could enjoy here but I do recognize this is entirely my fault. Seeing some of munchs early work was surprising and interesting but I did not get to enjoy much of anything else

If you choose the Rasmus Meyer Collection from Kode 1,2,3 or4, the Bergen Art Galleries, you have a chance to see 4 rooms of paintings by Edvard Munch. The painting of The Scream is not there but there is a good print that Munch did of the head in The Scream and several hands up in horror, with a black... More
