Interesting museum on how the merchants in the area lived and worked. While the museum has written descriptions of the exhibit, we were part of a shore excursion from a cruise of a walking tour that included this museum. The tour guide provided more information...More

Visited this museum because of the great reviews and was pretty disappointed. There's really not much there and it's boring. WĒ

We thought this was the best of the museums in Bergen. Gives you a good look at how the merchants lived. Includes original home and business. Well well-organised and easy-to-follow. There are some steep steps.

As this attraction is not fully covered by Bergen card (only 20%), we initially had some reservations, but eventually decided to go after reading reviews. Glad we did it, and it was an absolutely gorgeous place. Well-preserved rooms and full of history. The ticket is...More

There was a lot of information about the fisheries and related things. Personally I would have liked to know more about their day to day lives. How did they do the cooking? What about hygiene? A lot of the men were not allowed to associate...More

Thanks for the review and visit to the museum. It seems that you didn't have time or didn't get to see or our second museum, Schøtstuene, where we show assembly rooms for the winter season and kitchen. More information about the day to day life,...More

When you visit the Hanseatic quai you suddenly will go back all the way to the Middle Ages. The Hanse originated in Northern Germany, an agglomeration of the major cities they were, with the function of doing business and commerce with various kind of merchandise..The...More

A small museum detailing the Hanseatic League in Bergen and the Norwegian stockfish industry. Yes it is dark inside and cold but that is what it would have been like. It added to the authenticity. The exhibits were interesting with about the right amount of...More

I went to this museum during a visit to Bergen. The museum tells the story of the Hanseatic merchants who traded fish and other items from 1350 to 1750. The museum is very dark inside, but contains many interesting items, well worth a visit. Like...More

A very well planned museum showing how life was in early Bergen. It is on a few floors with stairs, so may not be suitable for all.

You really don't need a tour. It is a very small museum and well explained with wall postings in several languages, as I recall. Stop by the information desk at the entrance and ask if there is a tour, and if not pick up... More
