The School Museum

SKJUL KART

From catechism to flannel boards - Norways oldest school building.

The School Museum is one of Bymuseet i Bergens museums, located in the old Latin school in Lille Øvregate, right next to the Cathedral.

On the first floor you can see what the school might have looked like in the 18th and 19th centuries. On the second floor changing exhibitions are presented in an exhibition with beautiful school plans. Its one of the oldest school buildings in Norway. It was built after the big city fire in the early 18th century. There was also a school here before the fire, and the history of this school goes all the way back to the 12th century. The first schools were for those who were to become priests and eventually for rich sons. In the 19th century, it became more common to attend school, and towards the end of the 19th century most people received some  education in Norway.

In the School Museum we show what the old Latin school from 1706 to 1840 may have looked like. The school consisted of several classrooms and housing for the principal. It was the students from the upper class who went here, and they were taught Latin, religion, mathematics and other important subjects. The oldest students were taught by the principals. Many of those who became important in Bergen at this time attended this school. The famous author Ludvig Holberg also went here.
