This series of museums is quite impressive, the exhibitions are lovingly put together and very well presented. Most of the staff are lovely but we did encounter a horrible woman (the receptionist/shop attendant) when we initially came to purchase our tickets at Kode 2 today. But aside from that it is worth going to and strolling around the nearby park.... More

On a wet afternoon in Bergen we had an enjoyable few hours at the KODE. A large varied collection spread over three separate buildings (think the forth was closed on our visit) that should have something for everyones taste. The Munch and Norwegian landscape artists were particularly impressive, but amongst all the works you can also see Klee, Miro, Braque... More

KODE 3 has nice intimate galleries over two floors and a really impressive collection of Edvard Munch paintings. The for rooms dedicated to this artist take you through the stylistic stages of is life in a wide array of canvases.

The themes vary from period to period, so it makes sense to check their websites to see whether there are any specail exhibitions if you plan to visit. I would recommend the Norwegian historical paintings, but there are many worthwhile items to look at. Recommended!

Reasonable price for Norway, I guess. We visited only building no. 3 for the Edvard Munch collection but were disappointed as none of the well known pieces were there. Remaining art average at best.

Really informative and rich in interesting collections of Norwegian visual arts, including some wonderful works of their very own national painter Edvard Munch... Kode is made up of a complex of buildings (four, if I remember correctly), so you need to take your time to visit all galleries and give all exhibits a proper look - I'd say reserve minimum... More

Came here to kill some time whilst visiting Bergen. They had the Edvard Munch collection here at the time. Free to enter with some great examples of his work.

The entire museum was wonderful, but the Edvard Munch collection was illuminating. It is the 2nd largest collection of his works, from early in his career to late in life.

some nice collections of norwegian painters, and quite centrally located too, however, if you want to see the best Norwegian art, you really have to travel to Oslo where most of it is housed, as you would expect. Some respite from the rain, however.
