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.

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.
