Unlike other university museums we've visited before, this 4 storey museum has a lot to offer. From history to ocean garbage, from theatre to mummy, this museum is educational and inspiring. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the kids had fun treasure hunting.

...... and very well worth while visiting. Original & old part of Bergen. Nice shopping area with lots of local craft stores, not cheap though - GBP200 / USD300 for a sweater. Easy to reach from the port area. Full of character.
