Take a step back in time and walk through the three-story museum's replicated authentic trading room, offices, sleeping quarters, and kitchen.

  • For the entrance fee (120 NOK!) there is clearly not enough. Currently only the Schötstuene can be visited and here you can pass in max. 20 min. Certainly worth seeing, but this is far too expensive!

  • 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.
