We waited until later in the day to go to the art museums. There were three out of four buildings open. We did not give ourselves enough time to go through them all. My husband's backpack did not fit in the available lockers in the first museum so we decided we would hit that one last but ran out of... More

Had the opportunity to spend Sunday afternoon visiting the three buildings KODE museums. Is full of beautiful Norwegian art! From Munch to Astrup as well as Picasso, among others. Also, has a children area to play and also create their own art. If you are short in time I would recommend building 3 that is dedicated exclusively to Norwegian art!!... More

Had a few hours before leaving Bergen, so I stopped by this museum. The paintings were interesting,and you get a good overview of the art scene in Norway.

We missed the Nikolai Astrup exhibition in Dulwich so keen to see some of his works in Bergen. Excellent exhibition. Quite busy but the pictures were easy to see and a very enjoyable activity for a wet afternoon . Lots of good quality souvenirs in shop. Also excellent light lunch in the cafe . Thank you !

If you are restricted for time (as we were), you will need to plan your visits to these galleries, as they are not all open at the same time. The Gallery we visited consisted of 3 floors of very good examples of Norwegian art through the centuries. Not a great fan of contemporary art, but there were enough traditional ("proper")... More

Every city we visit, we try to find the museums and galleries; they're some of our favourite places to visit. Bergen isn't a large city, but it's full of history, and the Kode Art Museums reflect some of the best in local and international art. There are four buildings, of which three were open. Admission is for all of the... More

Several buildings that provide an excellent overview of Norwegian art. Helpful tags in Norwegian and English to put most of the art into historical perspective and make more interesting. Worth the time during a visit.

We found the organisation of this museum rather difficult as it is located in Koln 2/3/4. Essentially what you need are numbers 3 and 4 where you will find Munch, Klee and others right up to current work. There is a good deal of contemporary Norwegian art. It is the quality of the art and not the organisation/buildings which give... More

There are 4 buildings that house many different art exhibits. We only had time for one building containing the work of Munch and his contemporaries. We found this to be very worthwhile.

I was somewhat overstimulated by this art museum! It houses some of Norway's most famous paintings, but it also caters for a bit of everything; neoclassical masterpieces followed by a modern exhibit gone bananas. Truly exceptional. And the staff were very helpful indeed - the lady giving the guided Munch tour packs in a great deal of humour, intellect and... More
