The tour ends at Midthuset (English: the house in the middle), where you can explore our museum shop. Experience Bryggen in a new way and learn more about life here over 500 years ago!

Joining our guided tours before exploring the beautiful Schøtstuene on your own, undoubtably adds to your museum experience! Be fascinated by the history, admire the interior and art, and explore the fire houses that were used to prepare food.
