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

Picasso was closed in February :( i quite enjoyed the silver and public use objects exhibition ( like chairs, cutlery, etc) but the paintings are what is best... More

If you are otherwise in Bergen this museum warrants a visit. But for many it would probably not be a destination museum. It is unevenly curated. Predictably and pleasingly strong on Munch and Astrup, with some very nice 19th and 20th century French and Spanish works (including some worthy Picassos), a number of collections disappointed because examples of the artists'...

There is a row of Art Galleries with differing themes - all of which are interesting in their own right. There is an excellent colelction on Munch paintings and, perhpas more suprisiingly, of Picassos.

Art from old to new with local and international artists represented and well presented. I've been twice (once on a Sunday) and both times, it waa fairly quiet - always a pleasant experience in a museum. If you're in Bergen and the rain comes down (as it's sure to) you could do a lot worse. Break off halfway with a... More

The museum was in four separate modern buildings, the exhibits I wanted to see were in 3 and 4, I went into number 3 first, I was unsure if I was allowed to use my camera so left in locker with my backpack, I later noticed others using theirs, but did not wish to go back at this point, the... More

It's a bit hard to rate this attraction as it is divided into four separate buildings with differing contents. We visited three of them, KODE 1,2 and 3. KODE 3 with the golden Norwegian painters (esp Munch) was a four rating, KODE 1 a 3 and KODE 2 just a 2 (temporary exhibitions and not much of that). The good... More

Arrived in Bergen to a downpour so we were quite pleased to spend the afternoon in this museum. Great mix of contemporary and the classic exhibits thoughout the four buildings. Enjoyed the Norwegian landscape paintings--especially knowing I'd be experiencing some of the scenery the next day with Norway in a Nutshell. Overall, a lovely museum worth your time.

Free entry with Bergen card. The museum buildings are by a lovely park and are small and accessible. We just looked at the late 19th/early 20th Century stuff and it was great; Picasso and Munch especially.
