Bryggens Museum display findings of the archaeological excavations of Bryggen from 1955 and contains the foundations of the oldest buildings in Bergen.
Bryggen, the old wharf in Bergen, is an exceptional example of a medieval urban area, and it has been designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO. In 1955 parts of Bryggen were ravaged by a fire, and during the subsequent excavations a huge number of objects were found, providing a vivid insight into commerce, shipping, handicrafts and everyday life in medieval times.
Bryggens Museum is built over the remains of the first settlement at Bryggen and allows you to experience life in medieval Bergen. The oldest buildings are from the 12th century. The Museum will in 2016 stage an exhibition on town fire and urban development as well as an exhibition on Bryggen`s runes from the Middle Ages.
