The open-air Old Bergen Museum is a reconstructed small town consisting of around 50 wooden houses dating from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
Old Bergen is a reminder of what Bergen used to be like. In the 19th century, Bergen was Europe’s largest wooden city, and its steep and densely built-up streets, squares and alleyways gave it a unique character.
The open-air museum has 55 wooden houses from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, most of which originate from Bergen city centre. A visit to Old Bergen provides some answers as well as a breath of nostalgia.
Actors make the stories come to life. How could life in Bergen have been 150 years ago? What did it look like? What did people talk about? In beautiful surroundings you may meet both landlords and servants from times past. You can visit our park and the restaurant without a ticket.
