This structure, as the name itself suggests, contains information from the Hanseatic period of Norway’s history. The Hanses were known to be merchants who dictated trade all throughout the northern region of Europe. This museum, as a result, depicts the lifestyles of that clan. Renovated in the year 1702 after the great Bergen fire which destroyed all the major buildings in the town, the museum was restored again to gain its former glory. Schøtstuene, meanwhile, is an extension of the Hanseatic Museum which has artefacts of the 18th and 19th century too.
