Seven museum buildings in one digital space!

The four art museums and the composer´s homes have also been given new and updated names.

Dear digital visitor!

We hope you find you way around our new website and that you like our new look.

In the following, you get a quick overview of what's new.

Please take some time to explore our new site. Note that it is still under development.

We hope you meet it with curiosity!

Seven museum buildings, one website

Finally, we can present Kode in one place. Now the composer´s homes Troldhaugen, Lysøen and Siljustøl no longer have their own websites.

Art and music are equated and communicated side by side.

Under Museums, you will find both a quick and comprehensive overview of all seven buildings that make up Kode, as well as a separate page for each of them.

New names for the museum buildings

We have both renewed and simplified the names of our buildings.

The art museums KODE 1, 2, 3 and 4 are now history.

We look back in history and are proud to take in use names that many people in Bergen already are familiar with:

KODE 1 = Permanenten

KODE 2 = Stenersen

KODE 3 = Rasmus Meyer

KODE 4 = Lysverket

The composer's homes get shorter names:

Edvard Grieg Museum Troldhaugen = Troldhaugen

Ole Bull Museum Lysøen = Lysøen

Harald Sæverud Museum Siljustøl = Siljustøl

Kode has a nearly 200 year long history, which we are very proud of. We are one museum, with seven unique arenas for art and music. We care for and communicate Norway's common cultural heritage, in and from Bergen. We are changing the names to reflect this heritage. We do this, among other things, by highlighting names with long traditions, and names that honor those who have made us the museum we are today. We also believe this will make it easier for the public to find their way around. This is an ever so small Christmas present, especially to our loyal audience here in Bergen.
