Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo

4.1
#11 of 66 in Museums in Oslo
Discover one of the most significant private collections of post-war and contemporary art in Northern Europe at Astrup Fearnley Museet. The permanent collection, once dominated by paintings and sculptures by American and European artists, now features art from India, Japan, China, and Brazil as well. The museum's three pavilions sit against the waterfront backdrop in a neighborhood that used to house docks and shipyards. Notice how the maritime theme is reflected in a sail-shaped glass roof and mast-like steel columns. The museum also features strange works, like a cow split in half and submerged in formaldehyde by controversial British artist Damian Hurst.

  • Spennende utstilling, men helt avhengig av en flink guide for å få med hva de forskjellige bildene står for, og betyr. Totalt en fin opplevelse.  more »
  • If you are a fan of modern art and you are in Oslo this is a must. If you are not so keen it is still a good visit. The building designed by Lorenzo Piano is worth a visit on itself.  more »

  • Architecture of this museum is very attractive, situated besides the sea.The museum built in earlier 90's. There are wheelchair accessible entrance in this building. The ticket price is a little bit high but it will worthy visit. The place is kid friendly, you can take your kids there. The outside area is very beautiful, you can seat outside and see the beautiful view from there.
  • Awesome museum with great art and cool architecture. Two separate buildings, be sure to check out both of them! Lots of fun stuff for kids to do as well. Nice cafe with outdoor terrace and situated right next to a pebble beach 🏖 Highly recommend this museum 👍
