Go on the half hour tour offered and learn the history of this interesting area with the Museum being an exceptional and important part. The day we visited was the 145 year old birthday.

We decided to visit this museum which is close to historical Bryggen on our final day in Bergen. Unfortunately there was no discount on the entry fee with a Bergen Card. The museum, which is housed in a conserved old wooden building, is furnished in...More

This museum, although sometimes crowded in small rooms, is worth a visit not only to learn about the Hanseatic League and the great importance of the dried fish commodity but to see how the men and apprentices lived. It doesn't take very long to tour...More

As we arrived there was an English tour just starting. Excellent guide, Monika, who lead this group and taught me so much about the Hanseatic league in northern Europe. Maps orientated from a Norwegian perspective were hugely helpful in understanding the trade routes at the...More
