  • The University has 2 museums: Science Museum, currently closed for works; and the Historisk Museum. It is located just outside the village, but not really far away and hit is a nice walk through beautiful streets with magnificent mansions (who is interested in architecture: Here you must be; see which facades!!) The collection of this museum is a bit of a mixed bag: Church art, Vikings, knitwear, folk art, icons, Ibsen and his time in mountains...... I've been mostly interested in the Vikings, but unfortunately, this Department was CLOSED!!! (There was a lot of closed in Mountains when I was there:-() To the ecclesiastical art, which greatly appeals to me gwl not ... I was expecting me to a collection of chalices, sculptures, silverware; None of all that. This collection of ecclesiastical art here is just gorgeous and goes to show one more time it can by Norwegian craftsmen. The display is nice and cared for; sufficient explanation; only here and there a bit gloomy; a little more light would be welcome. Also the didactic approach of this museum is excellent. For children is a lot of fun to see: knitwear, clog-makers, ancient cots, clothing etc etc. ... Mellissa was very friendly and helpful.

Where to stay in Bergen

As a major Norwegian city, Bergen offers accommodations--and just about everything else--at a high price. Try to stay in the picturesque Bryggen wharf area near the fish market, or in the city center. If you’re looking for lively nightlife, check out rooms close to the city’s university. To find less-expensive lodging, search for hostels in the city center and campsites just out of town. Alternatively, live like a local by staying in a small guesthouse.
