If you want to understand Bergen and its past, you should not miss this museum. The ticket, 160 NOK, includes the access to Schotstuene merchants rooms and also to the Norwegian Fisheries. Basically, the Hanseatic museum consists in the visit of a very old wooden...More

Everything is old the furniture, floors, walls, and artifacts. So authentic it is creepy. Get a guided tour or you will rush through and miss things. The stairs are challenging. Nice gift shop; staff is great and they sell beverages. I learned many things and...More

This is a small museum based in a house which was offices and warehouse for Hanseatic merchants in Norway. The building itself is interesting being entirely timber construction and gives a feel for what many of the pre-modern buildings here must have been like. There...More

Good museum with lots of information and detail put in... Although one room smells bad due to the fish that had been dried for decades. Overall good experience

Great overview of how the city became what it is, from 600 years ago! Well preserved building with an amazing history, worth far more than the hour needed to see it.

Not much to this at all. Good museums tell a story, this one and only displays artifacts without much context.

It would be easy to overlook this modest building on a corner of the busy Bergen wharf. Don't. It's a fascinating look at the early days of northern european commerce, showing how people lived and what they did. Very well done.

This is worth a quick visit while in Bergen. We gained an appreciation for what our Bergen on the map. The building is well-preserved and the displays are informative.

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
