The most interesting thing about the museum is the building itself. It gives one a perspective on life in the times prior to the 17th century. Provides information on how the Hanseatic league worked. The furnishings are original.

This is a well done and authentic museum. It can get somewhat crowded and you can feel a bit cramped but the experience is worth it.

I have read the histories and visited a goodly number of Hanseatic League cities over the years. This place made it all come to life in my imagination.

In total it was interesting to visit this place. Rooms are very tiny. If more than 10 people inside then very difficult to move on to the next room. Very old building, older than 300 y

The Hanseatic Museum is housed in an original 16th centuary merchants house and tells the story of the international dried cod trade. It is a warren of small rooms and very steep stairways and is definitely not disabled friendly. For the price of entry, you...More

This museum does a good job of explaining Bergen’s importance as a trading centre, especially as it related to the Hanseatic League. German traders established a thriving merchant class, largely dealing in “stock fish” (most typically cod). The building originally was used to store the...More

This museum gives you an appreciation of Hanseatic times, especially the fish trade. Photos of the mountains of cod, barrels of cod liver oil, and the instruments of the trade gave us an insight into the times. The living quarters upstairs gave us an idea...More
