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

I don't often go to Art Galleries but I was determined to see this one because of the Munches. The Scream is very well known but I had never seen any of his work "in the flesh". Now I understand him much better. They have a very good collection of his paintings from early to late and they explain him... More

wished there was some works by impressionists, but none to be seen. but great variety from old to new. mostly by scandinavians. lots to learn about . there are 4 buildings adjacent to each other. also called KODE museum, and includes Rasmus Meyer collection. As things go in Scandinavia, not all that expensive as some museums.

We visited tis art gallery on a one day trip to Bergen. Lovely place to spend time as there is so much different art to view. Friendly staff and a good cafe serving excellent coffee at a good price. Will defiantly visit again when next in Bergen.

The KODE Museums are worth a visit for the interesting collections. If you like museums that are small to moderate size and varied as we do you will definitely enjoy the experience. We loved the silver and gold displays as well as an installation by a Finnish photographer. We spent the day going to all four buildings stopping for a... More

Went to Kode 1 to 4 and enjoyed them all in their diversity. Shame part of it was closed but I believe it re-opened the day we left. Certainly worth a visit it to catch the wider look a Munch range.
