Old Bergen Museum

SKJUL KART

A breath of nostalgia!

In the 1800s Bergen was Europe’s biggest wooden city, a distinctive city environment with closely spaced wooden buildings, busy streets, markets and alleys. At Gamle Bergen open air museum you can experience some of this atmosphere, with houses from the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries. What did it look like? What did people talk about?

In beautiful natural surroundings you can meet both masters and servants from the past. You can peek in windows, open doors, and walk into exhibitions and historical interiors. The museum’s role players help to bring the site to life and provide answers to some of the questions on how life could have been lived in Bergen one or two hundred years ago.

But the visit should not stop there; Gamle Bergen is a large place! A walk in the surround park is ideal for a sense of peace and quiet, and you can eat lunch at the Gamle Bergen Tracteursted which is open June-August. Both the park and the restaurant can be visited without a ticket.

Gamle Bergen museum danner også rammen for flere store, flotte og innholdsrike familiearrangementer, som St. Hans, Skillingsbollens dag og BT-dagen. Ved forespørsel er det mulig å bestille omvisninger også utenom åpningstid.

Gamle Bergen museum also provides the setting for several fantastic fun-filled days for the family, such as Midsummer Night, summerschool etc. With prior notice, it is possible to arrange tours outside of standard opening hours.

The museum opened in 1946 and was built around the summerhouse "Elsesro" which shipbuilder Rasmus Rolfsen built for his wife Elsebe. The property was owned by the Rolfsen family from 1784 until 1903. Here, the family built a shipyard and a summerhouse, and later a park in the style of a formal English garden. Gamle Bergen foundation succeeded in establishing the museum as a safe haven for Bergen’s old buildings, which were threatened with being torn down. The houses which now stand in the museum arrived between 1945 and 1981. The open air museum has today 55 wooden houses, most of which originally stood in the centre of Bergen.

Gamle Bergen is under development, and in a few years a new visitor centre will be opened which will further improve visitor's experience.
