Attraction details
Owner description: Berg is a charming manor house in Louis XVI style from 1803. The house used to belong to the family Homann in Kragero. The last owner, Miss Jenia Homann who died in 1943, donated it to Kragero Local Authorities for use as a museum. The main building has interior and furniture from different eras, mostly from the 1800s, but also from older periods and from Jeia Homann's own time. In addition to the manor house, there are also several buildings around Bergsbukta that have been transferred to the museum. All of them have connection to the coastal culture in Kragero district. A new exhibition building houses collections from coastal environment and exhibitions devoted to art and coastal culture. The park and belonging forest is a beautiful and popular recreation area with nature trails and fine beaches for bathing in Helle Fjord. There are good parking space, guest harbour and well-protected natural harbour in the area. The museum building has museum shop and cafe. Berg-Kragero Museum owns and runs also Kittelsen House in the centre of Kragero. It is where artist Theodor Kittelsen was born in 1857, and is now a museum for exhibitions of Kittelsen's works.

The history of old Kragerø, a small village by the sea in south east of Norway, is told by several old buildings and a modern gallery with old tools, pictures and means from daily life, situated in a lovely park with access from sea/ private small boats and by cars. This is a very nice place to visit, especially in summertime when it also is possible to have a picnick in the park and a bath in the sea if the water is warm enough, - and the water is very clean!

One can learn a lot about how fishermen and their families lived more than 100 years ago, and how people in Kragerø had their income from the men cutting ice in the lakes during winter, exporting the ice all over the world. Fathers and husbonds stayed away from home for years!
