The Bryggens Museum makes for an excellent foray into the museums of Bergen. One of the primary reasons the Bryggens Museums should be one of the first you visit is due to its location. The Bryggens Museum is the site of Bergen’s first settlement.While laying down the foundations for the Bryggens Museum, foundations of an 800 year old building were found. Upon digging deeper into these foundations, a treasure trove of the artifacts from 1955 to 1972 were discovered.
These excavated treasures are a part of the museum’s exhibits and are a real treat to view. A majority of the Bryggens Museum’s displays revolve around the Middle Ages and what life was like for the average Bergen folk during that time.Bergen was the largest town in Norwayduring the 1300s and a reconstruction of the town shows just how vital Bergen was for the development of Norway.

Brings you back into the medieval times with its preserved buildings now as shops and cafes.
Very nice museum. The lower level is built around 11th-century ruins from the earliest dwellings. There are drawings by a famous cartoonist, then the top floor has beautiful examples of Bergen art.
Interesting, you will know when and how this province developed from begining. I am impressive this. Four thumb
Really cool museum with medieval artifacts and contemporary artwork on the other floors
Limited exhibits but the special exhibition of one of Norway's famous cartoonist was interesting
