We paid 100NOK to enter which gives you access to the 4 gallery buildings which can be used over 2 days. Firstly, only 2 of the 4 buildings were open and actually those closed would probably have been the more interesting ones for tourists who aren't necessarily art experts. The galleries were much smaller than expected and as such meant... More

KODE 1 & 2 are closed but 3 & 4 is enough to make the entrance fees worth it! Checked out Picasso and Munch's works. Of cos there are many other artists paintings as well. Expect to spend at least 3-4 hrs to really enjoy the intriguing works.

There are a number of Kode buildings, each with different art inside. We found some things of interest in each building that interested us, spent the whole morning in them.

A great collection of Art Galleries and Museums (9 in total). A good opportunity to explore Norwegian and Bergen local art and culture - good coffee shop (disappointed in the range on offer in the shop in Kode 2?)

Whether or not you like art, it's quite interesting to pay the KODE museums a visit if you're in Bergen. With a range of different styles, you can visit 4 museums for 100 NOK for 2 days, which is very good value. Be aware that you'll be asked to leave your bags (unless very small) and umbrellas in the locker... More

This series of museums is quite impressive, the exhibitions are lovingly put together and very well presented. Most of the staff are lovely but we did encounter a horrible woman (the receptionist/shop attendant) when we initially came to purchase our tickets at Kode 2 today. But aside from that it is worth going to and strolling around the nearby park.... More

On a wet afternoon in Bergen we had an enjoyable few hours at the KODE. A large varied collection spread over three separate buildings (think the forth was closed on our visit) that should have something for everyones taste. The Munch and Norwegian landscape artists were particularly impressive, but amongst all the works you can also see Klee, Miro, Braque... More
