The museum itself is quite small and there isn't too much to see unless you're a real Grieg fan. There are concerts on frequently in front of a giant window overlooking the same lake that Greig did when he composed his music. For a better experience go with one of the tours (leaves from fishmarket at 11am daily, 250NOK) which... More

A fabulous experience firstly to wonder the museum and then the home of this great composer, Edvard Grieg. We were also fortunate to hear a recital of some of Grieg's compositions by Gunilla Süssmann, a truly inspirational pianist.

The museum is really informative with great personal items. The house, composition hut and grave site are really interesting. Make sure you get there and attend the recital. Truly a bucket list moment for anyone who loves classical music.

We were to visit Bergen on a cruise and, because we had been there before, decided to try to find something different to do besides the usual tour. We booked directly with Tide Buss on their web site and had a very nice bus trip up to Troldhaugen. We then had a tour of Edvard Griegs home and grounds. At... More

What outstanding value is this 11 am to 2.30 pm experience! A short bus ride from Bergen harbour took us to Troldhaugen and Grieg's villa, with the (relatively) new concert hall and museum close by. How much there was to enjoy! An informative talk by Daniel on the bus; a knowledgeable Elisa to show us through the small but beautifully... More

We went on a 3.5 hour tour, from coach by the visitor information. Took about 18 minutes. Greigs house is pretty small and overlooks the fjord. We had a fantastic, knowledgable guide, who told his stories fluently and with humour. There were too many in the group though for the size of the house. Don't miss the composers hut and... More

We visited Troldhaugen as part of a group from our cruise ship. The house itself is absolutely charming but not very large, and you cannot visit upstairs. The museum is interesting but again not very large, so if you have more than around 20 people in it is seems very cramped. When we visited it was typical Bergen weather (raining!)... More

If you have any musical interest (or not) do not miss this venue. The Tourist Office in Bergen will press the organised tour but we made our own way (at half the cost) and this independence allowed flexibility. We caught a tram from the centre (ticket at any 7/11 shop) to Hop (20 mins). From Hop station we walked to... More
