Description
This building, beside Lake Lille Lungeg√•rdsvann in central Bergen, was originally the administration building for the city's electrical power company.  In 2003 it was refurbished and reopened as a museum, one of four grouped together beside the lake.  The KODE 4 website explains that it contains, "... Norway's first art museum for children ... On the ground floor we also show the great exhibition with both painting and paper works of Nikolai Astrup.  On the 2nd floor you can do an art historical walk from the Renaissance to the 20th century, and the 3rd floor you can follow the movement in 20th century art, with an international and local perspective."  The building is also home to the restaurant "Lysverket".
