Many artists, from around 1900 to the present, are attracted and inspired by the landscape of the polder, dunes, forest and beach surrounding Bergen. The museum was founded in 1993 in Villa Kranenburgh and expanded in 2013 with a new wing. Museum Kranenburgh is known for its collection of key works from the Bergen School and its iconic sculpture garden with works by modern and contemporary artists. In our exhibition program, we highlight our own collection, but also dedicate presentations to works by contemporary artists.

The driving force behind the museum is its team of staff members and over 120 motivated volunteers.
