Small by English standards, but quiet and some great artwork on show. City centre location so definitely put this high on your list of must do's when visiting Bergen.

Terrific art and history of the artist Edvard Munch is included in the collection in Kode 4. From the included timeline I learned about this master's life and his view of life like scenes. Don't miss this featured artist!

this gallery surprised us with its depth and variety of Munch paintings. Seemed more than were on display at the Oslo gallery. One building was devoted to modern art and had some wonderful innovative sculptures, textiles, paintings. The cafe was lovely, excellent food, pleasant ambiance.

We visited 3 of the 4 KODE museums. Here's the scoop on the 4 museums. #1 is closed for renovation. #2 is a contemporary art museum - don't bother if you are not into contemporary art (like recycled clothes in a pile being art). # 3 is great - with the main feature being the Rasmus Meyer Collection - including...

I visited the Edward Munch exhibition and joined the guided tour. This was extremely interesting and the guide was very knowledgeable about her subject giving I sights into his personal life and loves and mentors. All the tour tides are very knowledgeable about the particular artist I believe and I would recommend a visit.

A modern atmosphere, their own free WiFi, extensive descriptions of paitings, and one pass for three museums. KODE is worth a visit.

One of the best Museum from Scandinavia, with a lot of paintings from national or abroad collection, Munch paintings are better then in Oslo

In retrospect, I get the various KODEs confused, but my favorite is as I recall, KODE 3 where one finds the Rasmus Meyer Collection with what may be the most comprehensive collection of Edvard Munch--I liked these galleries even more than the Munch Museum in Oslo. The collection is very strong on Norwegian artists from the 18th and 19th centuries,... More
