Really old building, faithfuly preserved. An excellent view into the business trading life of the 13th-15th centuries. The building is that old and the scale and design of the living quarters was a revelation to us. This is NOT handicap accessible and there are a fair amount of steps. If you are travelling with someone for whom this is a challenge, they can wait for you across the street in Starbucks. Also, the shuttle to the Norwegian Fisheries Museum a couple of miles away leaves every half hour from just outside. It was a great morning--neither museum takes a long time, maybe an hour each.

The Hanseatic Museum provides an excellent way to understand the economic and trading base that underpinned the location, establishment and role of Bergen as part of the Hanseatic network.

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.
