  • A very interesting walkthrough. Very much enjoyed the experience. Definitely not up there on the fun or engaging necessarily, but interesting nevertheless.
  • + Interesting museum, very cold inside which adds to the experience. + Friendly staff. - Quite small, got through it all in less than an hour, - Expensive for what it is.. overall it was interesting but underwhelming.
  • Super interesting place! And the museum has a nice shop as well
  • lovely piece of building that still capture the essence of history of Bergen. we were lucky enough to have a guide explaining the interesting stories around the intricate details of the building. if you have the chance, do ask for a guide or join a guided tour, it offers much more than the plain displays of the content.
  • Important and educational historic location to visit if you get the opportunity. Very informative tour by a knowledgeable guide.
