When you buy your ticket make sure it includes the fisherman's museum and other annex. The museum on the Hanseatic wharf is interesting in itself with details of the Hanseatic trading history but coupled with the two annexes really does tell the story of Bergen,...More

The building is furnished as the home of a Hanseatic merchant that it actually was. That does not mean luxury, but living and working space for the merchant, his journeyman and his apprentices. The rooms have extensive information (in English) about fishing, the processes of...More

Really old building, faithfuly preserved. An excellent view into the business trading life of the 13th-15th centuries. The building is that old and the scale and design of the living quarters was a revelation to us. This is NOT handicap accessible and there are a...More

The Hanseatic Museum provides an excellent way to understand the economic and trading base that underpinned the location, establishment and role of Bergen as part of the Hanseatic network.

We really would have liked to have seen this site, after walking there in the rain we found out it will be closed for years for renovation. Bergen card needs to revise their information.

Norway is neat in that unlike the US, people can be trusted to act like adults. That's one of the reasons why the Hanseatic Museum is so neat - you're walking through a time capsule from the Hanseatic settlement of Bergen, that captures the sights,...More

It was interesting at best - there is not much to it, not much furniture. You're mostly just wandering around relatively empty rooms. For what you get, I thought the price of about US $20 per person was very steep. We only spent about 30...More

Our patience in the queue for this small museum was worth it (and we discovered the reason for the queue - free entry on their last day before closing for a long renovation period). I love small museums and old architecture and this museum was...More

You really don't need a tour. It is a very small museum and well explained with wall postings in several languages, as I recall. Stop by the information desk at the entrance and ask if there is a tour, and if not pick up... More
