    Many years ago in Bergen there are an open air museum near the place where Edvard Grieg composed Peer Gynt. It is the Old Bergen Museum and comprise some 40 characteristic wooden houses placed on an unhabited town with squares, street and alleys like they were used. Their interiors show Bergen's life in 18 and 19th centuries. You can visit the bakey, photografer's, dentist's houses, etc.
