About Bryggens Museum, Bergen
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.

Bryggens Museum, Bergen Reviews - Write a Review
A world class exhibit of Norwegian Medieval church art. Well worth the walk up the hill. There are other exhibits, but it is the medieval that stands out. great collection of art from stave churches.
It was all right, but smaller than expected. Some of the exhibits look like they need updating (e. g. the very washed out photos). The length and thoroughness of explanations in English seems to be completely random. Knowledge of Norwegian is recommended!
Great way to learn about Bergen and to get a quick overview of the Hanseatic community. The best part was the temporary exhibit "where do hail from?" about the origins and genetic research on skeletons found on archeological excavations
History of the area downstairs, other exhibitions upstairs. Some are a little out of date, but offer a quick introduction to the area and customs. Coffee shop is no frills, but cheaper than most in the area.
Immersion and authenticity are real strong points here. I really like that even the tiniest details of the lives lived in Bergen and Bryggen are shown here.
