Discover what life was like for the Hanseatic merchants of Bergen at Hanseatic Museum and Schøtstuene. Housed in a waterfront wooden warehouse from 1704, the museum covers the period when the Hanseatic League ruled the city. Take a step back in time and walk through the three-story museum's replicated authentic trading room, offices, sleeping quarters, and kitchen. Notice the small beds, low ceilings, and the smell of cod to get a taste of what a merchant's everyday life was like, and view relevant art work from the period.

  • Nice place to visit. How great is the guide depends on your luck. We got Hilde and she was amazing
  • The museum is closed for the next several years for some fairly complicated renovations. However this is not mentioned anywhere on the website. Ticket prices also continue to be the same. Hence my three stars. The Schotsteune is open and definitely worth a visit. Be sure to check out the kitchen area - really well done.
