The Regional State Archives in Bergen is a part of the National Archives of Norway, covering the district of Hordaland and Sogn and Fjordane.
The institution is responsible for receiving and making accessible to the public archival materials from local and regional government administration within the counties Hordaland and Sogn og Fjordane. Moreover, the Regional State Archives in Bergen supervises the archival conditions in all local public administration bodies in the region.

The holdings of the Regional State Archives in Bergen fill some 16,000 shelf meters of repository space (2009).
