Many people in our society have disabilities or impairments, both visible and invisible. Often it is challenging or impossible to attend cultural events, mainly due to how everything around us is constructed, planned and organised. Bergen Kunsthall has ambitions to improve accessibility to our on-site and online programming, and we want to focus on improving the following:

→ Awareness around accessibility when we plan events, exhibitions, tours
→ Information about general accessibility on-site and online
→ Information about any specific accessibility limitation for a specific project


Mobility impairment
We have alternative street-level entrances to our building for those with mobility impairments. Please scroll down for detailed information about our entrances and how to get access.

Portable chairs
We have portable chairs available. Please contact the front-of-house staff.

Service dogs
We welcome service dogs for every visit, except for club nights at Landmark Café.

Bergen Kunsthall has all-gender toilets. The toilet with universal design is located at Landmark Cafe (Door width 110 cm). It also includes a changing station.
More gender-neutral toilets are located in the basement.

There are parking spaces reserved for people with reduced mobility available outside Stenersen Museum.

Carer Certificate
The carer gets free entry. The person being accompanied pays for a senior ticket.


Bergen Kunsthall is located in a rich cultural environment and has significant antiquarian and cultural value. Due to the building’s character, it is vulnerable to facade alterations which makes it challenging to establish a universal design at the main entrance. As a result, arrangements were made for alternative entrances.

Contact point and navigation
The entrances with universal design are usually closed, and you must contact the reception upon arrival to gain access. Use the bell which is situated on the left side of the main entrance, at the end of the staircase. To get to the bell from the street level, you will find a dropped curb between the green light pole and the white flag pole.

Due to the building’s design and structure, you will need assistance from the staff to navigate and move between the first floor and second, the different exhibition rooms and Landmark cafe.
