Spread out among four buildings, this museum has a good collection of both Norwegian art -- from its masters to the present. The buildings are all clustered together so moving around from one to the next is easy. The Bergen Pass allows you into all of the museums.

I'll be honest I only popped in here because it was on my Bergen Card. Boy was I glad I did. A welcoming chap on the front desk who appeared so delighted to see me he seemed like some shipwrecked sailor set the tone. Munch, he of the Scream, is easily the best known and his galleries open up a... More

Kode 3 & 4 were enjoyable. Discovered two painters we'd never heard of. Nikolai Astrup & Johan C.C. Dahl. And, of course, Munch. If you are an art museum person, this is worth a trip. With the Bergen Card, it's free.

We stopped off on our tour at these galleries and had a really interesting few hours. Many interesting pictures but the Munch pictures were the gems. This a really fascinating insight to a great artist. You must visit if in Bergen.

Please visit this museum if only to see the Astrup gallery. Astrup was a fantastic artist and printer who is little known outside of Norway. However his paintings are just beautiful. The only disappointment was that the gallery has not produced a book of the exhibition because we would have bought one.

Entry for the art museum was 100NOK and easily worth it. The museum is split into four buildings, Kode 1 to 4. Kode 1 was closed for refurbishment. Kode 2 and 3, a mix of Norwegian, Scandinavian, classical and modernist art, from 15 Century to 1980, is excellent. Kode 2 was contemporary art. To be honest I just don't get... More

KODE museums are some of the best in the world. They have the most impressive Munch's paintings. It is also the only cheap activity you can do in Bergen. With only 100 NK you can see all the 4 museums.

There are currently 3 out of 4 of the galleries open showing a diverse range of primarily Norwegian painters. The contemporary art was a little difficult to get my head around but the more traditional was enjoyable. Compared to other museums in Bergen it is expensive (100 NOK) and I don't think it offers the best value for money unless... More

The Kode art museum comprises 4 separate buildings. Building one was closed so we could not go there. I asked one of the admission staff what 'Kode' meant and he said - nothing!!!. A brand name?? Firstly we went to Kode 2 building. This was contemporary Norwegian art in 2 rooms. It only took 15 minutes to see this. Another... More

The exhibits are well displayed, although the lighting may be a bit low and not uniform in some places. The exhibits are very good and it's incredible to see them in such historic settings. The staff are super nice and interested in answering questions about the art.
