Terrific summary of the history of Bergen

The building is furnished as the home of a Hanseatic merchant that it actually was. That does not... read more

It was interesting at best - there is not much to it, not much furniture. You're mostly just wandering around relatively empty rooms. For what you get, I thought the price of about US $20 per person was very steep. We only spent about 30 minutes inside, then walked to the second location, which is just big rooms with tables in it. There are stairs at both locations.

Our patience in the queue for this small museum was worth it (and we discovered the reason for the queue - free entry on their last day before closing for a long renovation period). I love small museums and old architecture and this museum was perfect! While there are issues with access, this is often the case with such old buildings. The rooms and floors gave such a wonderful atmosphere, even the darkly lit ones! Many photos were taken and a great experience was had!

I found this museum very interesting and authentic. I did not know a deal about the Hanseatic League, so was interested in the explanations.

The building has lot of narrow stairs, so would be challenging for people with mobility issues, but I found the authenticity of the place well worth the climb. The rooms were furnished in the original style - box beds etc so overall I found the place to be excellent.

Unfortunately, my husband was not impressed - very worried about the safety aspects of a narrow wooden building - so I have reduced my score to 'very good'.

The building is sinking and the museum is being closed for a few years while it is taken down piece by piece and reassembled so we were pleased to have the chance to see inside. It’s a fascinating building to walk around with interesting displays on Hanseatic history on the ground floor. It’s very dark upstairs which makes it difficult to see the map. More information boards would be good up there. The entrance fee, 16NOK, also gives entry to the Schoetstuene building, 5 mins walks away, where the apprentices and others used to gather for warmth and food. [No fires were allowed in the museum building so it was freezing.] It’s also an interesting and well preserved building. If you’ve time, which sadly we didn’t, entry to the Fisheries Museum is also included so, for Bergen especially, the ticket is great value.

It's a museum/exhibition in two parts. The first is right by the Starbucks. The second is further up and westwards near St Mary's church. Get a ticket in either and it'll allow you into the other. They also give you a ticket to the Fisheries museum.

The museum itself gives you a good insight into the historical background of Bergen, the Hanseatic Guild which had set themselves up in an enclave and the importance of the fish trade as well as some of the important aspects/tools that were relevant back then.

It does rain a lot in Bergen so I'd save this for a rainy day.
