  • Excellent museum detailing the history of the Bryggen. Informative and good displays of what it used to be like. The building itself is one of the oldest in the area and gives you a real sense of what it was like living and working here. Reasonable entrance fee for a worthwhile visit. Staff were friendly and the exhibits were all well done and laid out. Spans 3 floors. Recommended.
  • Well worthwhile doing the guided tour as you learn so much about the Hanseats and their way of life. The long rows of wooden buildings are beautiful and also the assembly room which is now the museum. Interesting to learn about their trading routes and the trade in Stockfish in Bergen.
