Bergen City Museum (Bergen, Norway)


Bergen Aquarium, lunch, thereafter, we arrived in Bergen City museum which, by far I think should have been where we should have started our tour (Denmark). Should have been so that we could have gasp some understanding on Bryggens and Bergen history. But I guess a bit too late to regret, anyway, upon arrival, seemingly our tour buddies were not keen. I am not sure why, they didn't want to view Bergen City Museum. Seriously, I couldn't comprehend. In return, they sat at the cafe while, I of course, why should I not walk into this museum. After all, its such a waste to travelling this far, and then, opting out from finding out what's in store in Bergen City Museum.


Built round the remaining foundations of 5 or 6 wooden houses from the 12th century and with interesting displays and traces of pieces of Bergen's past, nearly 1000 years, Bergen City Museum houses a viking boat on the ground floor, and then, as you make you way around this floor prior to walking upstairs, as I have already said, you get to understand Bergen history. Interesting, though its akin most other museums I have been to and in my own home country, there are some special things to view in Bergen City Museum. Specifically, drawing of children pasted on the wall and the artistic "bare it all" drawings or picture posters. Pretty much time worth spend here I believe, I think, most of most you probably will need, lets say 45 minutes in Bergen City Museum.

  5. Thanks for the honest view, I think it would not interest people like me, it will work only for history lovers.
