The garden is adjacent to the University Museum. Entry to the garden is free. It is a relatively small garden, but worth a visit by plant plant enthusiasts generally, and is a pleasant and tranquil area in which to sit. In late May, the azaleas...More

we got to this museum to find out that it was closed for the whole of 2015. A shame as I really wanted to visit this museum and it was quite a walk away from the centre

What beautiful flowers! My husband and I truly enjoyed strolling through the gardens outside this museum. There are ponds as well, and lots to photograph if you like that.

As another reviewer mentioned, the Natural History Collections are great for a rainy day. And it rains a lot in Bergen. I stopped in here on my last (rainy) day in Bergen. This is an excellent collection of natural artifacts. A real mish-mash which I...More

I stopped in because I love museums. And as a further incentive, any students get in free, but the 50nok entrance fee was very reasonable anyway. I was surprised by how great this museum was, an amazing range of diversity in the zoological collection, and...More
