“WHAT THERE WAS GOOD”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The display on Medieval Bergen was interesting but there are two 'spare' floor (temp exhibitions) we couldn't understand why they don't bring everything on the town together and bring it up to modern period

“Modern, well presented material.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This modern museum is built in part over the mediaeval part of Bergen and is right next to the Radisson Blu hotel. It contains a reconstructed boat of the period and many other artefacts, and includes audio-visual displays. When we visited there was an exhibtion of photographs from Pritypil (Chernobyl) which were almost impressionistic and a Shoe Exhibition to mark Bergen's history of shoe-making. There is an auditorium, a small cafe, a shop, toilet facilities and lockers.

“Modern and well presented.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This museum is in part built over the remains of the mediaeval part of Bergen and also contains a reconstructed boat of that period along with many other artefacts. When we visited there was also an exhibition of photographs from Pritypil (Chernobyl), which were almost Impressionist and stunning, and a Shoe Exhibition, with audio-visual components, to mark Bergens history of shoe-making. This was fascinating. There is also a shop and a small cafe, toilets and lockers.

“See how it all started”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

If the Bryggen is the first port of call for visitors to Bergen then this museum sets out in clear detail how and why the area developed. In truth I was slightly disappointed because at the price I would have expected something perhaps more imaginative. It rains a lot in Bergen and this would be a good place to dodge the downfalls for an hour or so.

“Great Museum- you learn a lot.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Situated at the end of the Bryggen, it looks quite a small place but it actually takes over an hour to tour round. You learn so much of the history of Bergen. My husband & I found it fascinating. We hope you do too.
