The museum is well laid out. Moving from a video display to museum to Greig's house, the visit requires a whole afternoon. The staff are very knowledgeable and took time on our visit. Visiting out of season we had a lengthy tour with a small group. Walking around the landscape is well worth it.

Location was quite far in from the station - was lost initially but followed some sticker signs and located finally. Very nicely preserved exhibits and even have a museum shop. The villas and composer's hut were well kept. We love the scenery of the vicinity and that's no wonder Edvard Grieg can compose such beautiful music. Inspiring surroundings indeed. We... More

If you enjoy classical music, it's worth visiting. I missed more information in English. I attended a piano concert with explanations about his life, but unfortunately everything was in Norwegian. The view is awesome.

The afternoon we spent at the Edvard Grieg museum has to be the best experience I've had during my university exchange here at Bergen! The curator, Amanda, played several of the composer's pieces for us inside Grieg's beautiful lakeside house. Her incredible knowledge of Grieg, her musicianship, and the beautiful garden next to the tranquil lake completed each other harmoniously.

But we had the chance to walk around the terrace. Nice pleasant walking despite the fact it was raining and it was very cold.

We toured Troldhaugen and those in our group who knew of him or his music found the tour interesting. We got to tour his home and I sat in Grieg's spot at the table and gazed at his favorite painting, just as he did every morning. We went down to the little building where he composed his music and toured... More

The Troldhaugen Edvard Grieg Museum is an interesting place and easily accessible when in Bergen due to the small nature of this city!

A very well maintained Grieg's house with an interesting collection. Knowledgeable guides. A nice garden. A very impressive part for me was a small summer house down in the garden. A good place to visit. It takes time to reach it by public transport, but very easy by car.

If you want to get a vibe of the place where Edvard Grieg and his wife lived, you need to see this. The museum is maintained in pristine condition, with all the original furniture and objects perfectly preserved. A local pianist offered a mini-concert featuring one of Grieg's works, which adds a nice touch to the whole experience. If you... More
