The Bergen Maritime Museum has a large collection of photos mainly of steamers, motor ships and tankers related to Bergen. We also have other pictures, such as sailing vessels, crew members, Bergen harbour, shipyards, shipwrecks, from World War I and II. The collection has so far not been digitalised.
