Nice museums, well worth the price and with kids' activities too!

This is a great art museum, spread out over 4 buildings. We especially enjoyed the Astrup exhibit in KODE 1 and the kids' wing. There's a good collection of Munch as well.

I was disappointed in the galleries although I did see paintings by Munch which I had not seen before however there appeared to be a few duplicates of ones I had seen in Oslo art gallery. I would not rush back. Oslo museums offer half price for seniors Bergen doesn't, poor show.

If you are intrigued by Munch paintings and drawings, an excellent opportunity to take a free docent led tour. A nice selection of paintings as well as some drawings (the Scream) representing his career. The docent led tours were at noon and 2 PM. Cafe closes earlier in the afternoon so either eat there or next door.

For 100NOK, you get a ticket to all three museums. This is a tremendous bargain. The fourth museum is closed for renovation. Subjects range from ancient religious art, to Norwegian, to modern and op art, and to one devoted to furniture and antiques. Very well conceived complex.

We took 2 days to look at the artwork in the museums and did not see all of it. Artwork and displays are beautiful and you may take photographs.

The Kode art museum is certainly one of the highlights of Bergen. Although its most famous painter, Edvard Munch of "The Scream" is on display, here you will find some of his lesser known paintings. The museum provides guided tours in English every day and the 30 minute tour is well worth taking. Also, the museum has a great cafeteria... More

Four museums, one entrance fee good for two days. Large bags or backpacks must be stored in lockers (free). Excellent cafe (I ate the best ever salad there two days in a row). Each building has its own gift shop. Lots of benches to sit on in front of the paintings. Kode 1 was closed when I was there. Kode... More

The 4 Kode buildings all look out on to a pleasant city park with flower borders, lawns and a fountain, but the one not to miss is Kode 3, that contains the Rasmus Meyer collection, donated to the city in 1924. Probably the collection that contains the best examples of the work of Edvard Munch ("The Four Ages of Life"... More
