Some info about the Sandviken-area:
Just over the road:
Sandviksboder Coastal Centre and the Norwegian Fisheries Museum is housed in the old Grade II listed warehouses from the 1600s and 1700s in Sandviken in Bergen. Here are therefore some of the oldest and best preserved warehouses in Bergen, some are older than those on Bryggen. Dried fish stalls are a unique heritage from the time Bergen was the center of a worldwide stockfish exports. The outdoor area is open to the public. On land and in the harbor, visitors can contemplate the diversity of heritage boats. Most are old, but some are more recent copies. Currently, the Norwegian Fisheries Museum closed for renovation and will reopen in May 2015.
A little further out in Sandviken is Old Bergen Museum, a reconstructed town with about 50 wooden houses from the 17 -, 18 - and 1900s. Old Bergen Museum was opened in 1949.

You can park and pay with coins, which is the most expensive (20nok/hour), buy tickets with coins or visa-card (10nok/hour) or there are some special-cards which I have: 40nok for afternoon/evening(17-23) or 100nok for one day (24h).
