Natural Science then and now
The oceans surrounding Norway have been the focus of research throughout the museum’s history, and new knowledge is still produced. Meet wildlife where we least expect to find it, in the deepest parts of the ocean! The bedrock we are walking on today at one point in prehistory lay a hundred kilometers below the mountain tops, deep down in the root of the mountain range. Get to know the processes that creates our globe. Our climate is changing. How has man influenced the development? What exactly is a plant? Plants are the descendants of the green algae on land, and some plants actually move, but this is far from a satisfactory answer – to find an answer you must come and study our exhibitions!
Our Viking Treasure was stolen, disappeared and then partially returned. Here you can find out more about what happened. Meet the mummies from Ancient Egypt, study the world’s oldest Hardanger Fiddle, study tools, inventory, costumes and musical instruments from historic farming communities in Norway, experience the exotic artifacts and study impressions from what used to be termed Colonies and much more. Experience exciting exhibitions within archeology, anthropology and cultural history.
The museum garden is a botanical gem in the center of Bergen - an exhibition of living plants. This is a protected old botanical garden used in research, dissemination and teaching. The selection of plants is large and varied with about 3000 different species today. Most of these are collected as seeds from wild species from around the world. There are also cultivated species of e.g. economically important or especially beautiful varieties. The Arboretum and Botanical Garden at Milde The Botanical Garden contains the scientific collections of living plants for use in teaching, research, dissemination and recreation. The collections include plant species from different parts of the world. We disseminate knowledge about plants diversity and the importance of preservation. Endangered or vulnerable species in Norwegian nature are taken care of in the Botanical Garden. Botanical Garden – producing and disseminating knowledge.
Christie is our museum café, operated by the baker Godt Brød. Here you can enjoy a light meal in beautiful surroundings.
In the museum shop you will find unique gift items, some intriguing goods, a selection of very interesting books, and some useful stuff too! The shop is available without a ticket.
Nursery, toilets and wardrobe
The museum has its own nursery and wardrobe downstairs with lockers for bags, backpacks and valuables. Strollers are primarily placed in the designated area outside. We also have some strollers for you to lend.
How to get there?
