NB: Please note that large parts of the Munch collection in KODE 3 are currently on loan to another museum.
KODE 1, formerly Permanenten, has housed KODE's collection of handicrafts and design, and shows changing exhibitions. The building was designed by architect Henry Bucher and was completed in 1896.
Note: No exhibitions in KODE 1 in summer 2022, due to refurbishment. You can still visit the building to take a look, and the museum is open for family workshops on the first floor, as well as for certain events.
Here you will also find restaurant and bar Bien Centro, which serves Italian food.
KODE 2 houses changing exhibitions with an emphasis on contemporary art. The building was designed by architect Sverre Lied and was completed in 1978.
KODE 2 also has a museum shop, and you will also find the cafe Smakverket, which serves a delicious lunch.
The exhibition NABO. How will we live together? will be shown until 11 September 2022.
The exhibition Nina Malterud. Material statements is also on display until 11 September 2022.
The collection after the businessman Rasmus Meyer has given its name to a small jewel of a museum. Here you will also find the world's third largest collection of Edvard Munch.
Note: Parts of the Munch collection are currently on loan. Some major works are still on display.
Over two floors, you wander through the "golden age" in Norwegian art history from 1880-1905 and onwards towards 1920. Here you will find works by artists such as J. C. Dahl, Hans Gude, Harriet Backer, Christian Krohg, Kitty Kielland, Nikolai Astrup and Erik Werenskiold, as well as the the Norwegian Matisse-students Henrik Sørensen and Jean Heiberg.
We also show historic Bergen interiors and the beautiful Blumenthal room with its full-covering ceiling and wall paintings from around 1760.
In KODE 3, there are permanent exhibitions and few changes are made to the selection on display. In July 2022, we opened a new presentation of the composer Ole Bull and his magnificent violins in three exhibition rooms.
The large museum KODE 4 is undergoing rehabilitation and currently only shows changing exhibitions, in addition to the large Tower Room on the fourth floor.
The large collection exhibition The Queer Gaze will be exhibited throughout 2022, and spreads through several rooms on the building's second floor. The comprehensive exhibition counts close to 160 works from antiquity to the present day, where, among other things, norm-breaking women, queer cohabitation and gender fluidity are thematized.
KODE 4 is also home to the restaurant Lysverket, which has a star in the Michelin guide.
