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.

You buy one ticket and that gives you access to all 4 buildings which is valid for 2 days. We only managed to get to one of them though (number 4) unfortunately. There was some nice art and exhibits in there but it wasn't the most interesting of places. There are some Munch paintings here. There are lockers available which... More

Almost missed this museum and glad that I did not. One could spend a leisurely half day exploring the four buildings that make up the museum. Great decorative arts in building one, Contemporary art in building two, Edvard Munch in three and Dahl & Nikolai Astrup in four. Learned a lot about Norwegian artists and their place in history. Don't... More

The Kode galleries occupy 4 buildings in close proximity in a splendid tree lined street with adjacent parkland. Within easy walking distance of downtown Bergen, they offer some relief from the bustle of the tourist areas and house a nice collection of Norwegian design, craft and art as well as some nice works by Picasso, Klee, Kandinsky and others of...

We dashed in as it was one of the last places open in the day (till 4pm off-season) so only looked round KODE 1. We did it using a Bergen card but if you have longer, 100NOK for all 4 KODE museums seems good value. I enjoyed looking at the exhibits, which ranged from silverware to furniture to pottery to...

Something for everyone. I had to rush round but really needs to stay a week and do them over a couple of days. Bergen is a fabulously bustling place.

The Art galleries are situated along the Lille Lungegardsvann - a beautiful open space with plenty of seats and gardens to sit in and admire the centre piece fountain.

KODE (Bergen art museum) offers a good combination of art from Norwegian and international (Picasso being the biggest name) artists. A good place to stop if you are interested in art. Just leave enough time in your planning, as this basically consists of 4 museums and will it take a considerable time to go through everything.

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
