As one of the first collectors of Edvard Munch’s art, Rasmus Meyer purchased chief works from all periods of Munch’s oeuvre.

The "Golden Age"

In 1917 Rasmus Meyer’s children donated their father’s collection of art and historical furniture to the city of Bergen.

Today, as part of KODE, the donation comprises one of the finest collections of art from the Norwegian "golden age" (1880–1905).

The beautiful museum building enables you to have a delightful wander through historical interiors from Bergen, plus to experience highlights from the careers of artists such as J.C. Dahl, Hans Gude, Christian Krohg, Harriet Backer, Kitty Kielland, Erik Werenskiold and Gerhard Munthe.

Permanent Exhibition

The Rasmus Meyer Collection is permanent exhibited at KODE 3.

The building opened in 1924. It was designed by architect Ole Landmark to house the extensive art gift donated in 1916 to the City of Bergen by businessman and art collector Rasmus Meyer. The museum was refurbished in 2013.
