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.

We went to all the available art museums with the Bergen card. Many of the museums had exhibits closed or in transition. Those that did, there was little to see. It's possible they are getting prepared for the summer season. I would have been more upset had I paid out of pocket to see, but less of an issue when... More

It is a bit confusing as there are four different museums/galleries under this heading. Kode 1 is a European design and decorative art museum. Lots of interesting 20thC furniture/jewellery/objects. Kode 2 has temporary exhibitions and modern art. Kode 3 has probably the widest appeal having Norwegian art from 19th and early 20thC including many by Munch illustrating his range beyond... More

This is a very high quality gallery which is a must-see in Bergen, and is included with free entry with the good-value Bergen Card. The gallery is actually split over four buildings along one street with each building covering different styles/periods. Each building has a small reception with Kode 2 having a cafe. Sadly some of the areas are closed... More
