Visit the archeological remains of Bergen's first settlements from the1000s.

Bryggen in Bergen has been a busy part of the city since the Middle Ages. Both the oldest wooden buildings and the thick cultural layers located below ground appear on the UNESCO World Heritage List. In 1955 parts of Bryggen burnt down, and the 13 year archaeological exavation which subsequently took place uncovered hundreds of thousands of objects which give an insight into everyday life in the city in the Middle Ages.

After the fire there was a heated discussion over the future of Bryggen, and many of the city’s inhabitants wanted to demolish the remaining wooden buildings. Fortunately public opinion changed, helped by the new and till then unknown stories of the city that was being unearthed. As a result - and with chief curator Asbjørn Herteig as the driving force – Bryggens Museum was established in 1976. The museum houses archaeological material from Bergen and Vestlandet in the Middle Ages, where the rich finds from the Bryggen excavations and later archaeological research in the city take centre stage. Bryggens Museum is built over the remains of Bergen’s oldest buildings from the first half of the 1100s. These architectural remains are still an important part of the museum’s permanent exhibition, and give visitors the experience of life in Bergen in the Middle Ages.

In addition we show two temporay exhibitons: Frithjof Sælen's Treasure Chest demonstrates the breath and diversity of Sælen’s production, through both famous and lesser known works. Discover Sælen’s book art, poetry, humour and wisdom, and brush up on your history through his caricatures of famous people. 

From Dahl to Dolk - West-Norwegian artists through 2 centuries. A sample exhibition showing paintings from Annie and Birger Mowinckel's art collection. Some are painted by artists from western Norway, others by artists located elsewhere who found their motifs in this part of the world.

Free entrance to the Museum Shop and the Museum Cafè.
