The University Gardens

Iris in the Museum Gerden

The University Gardens are the three botanical gardens of the University of Bergen's University Museum.

The Museum Garden is at the University Museum's Natural History building in the city centre, and the Arboretum and Botanical Garden are situated further out of town at Milde.

The gardens staff includes horticulturalists and academics at UiB. We curate and develop the collections in support of active research projects at the University Museum and at UiB, contribute to conservation efforts by special efforts with endangered species, and cultivate material for use in events, outreach, and teaching. 

The gardens are open to the visiting public all year round and without entrance fees.
