Inquiries and visiting the Library

Nytt bibliotekbilde

The library is open all work days (Monday-Friday) 9am-3pm. Closed between 11.30am and noon due to lunch.

The Bergen Maritime Museum aims to help as many as possible with maritime-related questions. However, due to limited resources, please take note of the following:

  • Be prepared. Provide as much concrete and relevant information as possible concerning your inquiry. We prefer written inquiries by email (or letters).
  • We answer inquires continually. It can take up to three weeks to receive an answer. If you have not received an answer by then, feel free to contact us again.
  • The Bergen Maritime Museum does not loan books or archive material, but you are welcome to use our books and archive material at the library.
  • The Bergen Maritime Museum is connected to the University of Bergen’s wireless system. Visitors from the University of Bergen may therefore log on to the University’s wireless system during visits. The library also has a PC and microfilm reader at its disposal.
