The University Museum of Bergen Cultural history is closed, long term, and needs to be rehabilitated to meet modern security requirements.

Our exhibitions "the deep sea – the unknown land" will undergo maintenance periodically in the summer months.

Help us take care of the buildings, the artefacts and each other by following some simple but important rules.

  • Follow the advice and directions of our staff.
  • Pushchairs must be parked outside the building. Padlocks can be borrowed in the shop. We have a few pushchairs available but recommend the use of baby carriers for babies who cannot sit.
  • It is not permitted to take food and drink into the museum.
  • Bags are to be stored in the museum’s cloakroom. 
  • Buy your ticket online. It is cheaper and provides faster access to the exhibitions.
