Through nooks, crannies and secret rooms

Simply walking through the museum is an experience. There are a multitude of rooms, galleries and staircases, with log timber walls and sloping floors.

Sandviksboder 23 is a seaside warehouse from 1730, which has been used as a store for stockfish, cod liver oil, and much more. 

Here one can experience a Bergen stockfish warehouse in its original form, with many fine details. The exhibitions in warehouse no. 23 tells the story of the wharf around Sandvikstorget. The various rooms contain temporary exhibitions about notching and building handwork, wall paintings from the 1700s, and the goods that once were stored in the warehouse – stockfish and herring. Here you will also find an exhibition about the motor brand Sabb from Laksevåg in Bergen, the all-time bestseller in Norway.


Warehouse no. 23 will in the future be used for temporary exhibitions.
