  • This is the most interesting museum, I think, in Bergen. The painted woodwork is amazing. It would be nice if some of the paper pieces, paintings, and leather work were more protected from the elements but they may do that when they renovate the building next year. The feeling and atmosphere is retained from the Hansestic period and it's a wonderful experience.
  • Absolute must-go in Bergen. The state the museum is in leaves nothing to be desired and immediately, after 3 or 4 minutes, you feel set back in time. The exhibition is very well structure and informative about the Hanse in Bergen.
  • Really interesting museum- comprehensive information provided and amazingly well preserved! A must during any visit to Bergen
  • Very interesting old, kept as it was, authentic museum. 3/4 floors high and steep stairs, but we'll worth the effort.
  • Small but well preserved little museum showing how the early settlers of Bergen were conducting their business in this little home. Shows some nifty inventions of those days and how they spent their time working and sleeping there. Got a bundle deal of entry to 3 museums (Hanseatic, fishery) including this, plus a bus that takes you around them.
