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

We really would have liked to have seen this site, after walking there in the rain we found out it will be closed for years for renovation. Bergen card needs to revise their information.

Norway is neat in that unlike the US, people can be trusted to act like adults. That's one of the reasons why the Hanseatic Museum is so neat - you're walking through a time capsule from the Hanseatic settlement of Bergen, that captures the sights, feel, and smells of the era of trade. Walking through the uneven floors, rooms and chambers you see exactly how people lived, traded, and worked during this interesting period in Bergen.

Highly recommended for the history nerd, but might be a bit much for children or anyone with mobility issues.

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'.
