The University Museum of Bergen aims to do top quality research related to collections within Cultural and Natural History, some of the largest collections in Norway. We preserve and keep the collections in accordance with international standards and make the collections accessible to researchers and the society. The University Museum disseminates research-based knowledge, understanding and experience to the public. Research is a basic dimension of all activities, serving to forge the tools needed to create a better world for all.
The University Museum of Bergen is an arena offering science communication for the whole University of Bergen and is facilitating meeting points between academia and society.
You find our exhibitions in Museplassen 3 (Natural History) and Haakon Sheteligs plass 7 (Cultural History). Cultural History is temporarily closed to the public.
