  • The museum boasts exhibiting many of Munch's works, yet they have such a small amount on display. We understand that a new building is being prepared and many works maybe in storage or in transit...  more »
  • Located slightly north of Central Oslo, this little museum houses many of Edvard Munch's artwork and history as well as several other Norwegian artists. Slightly underwhelming experience as we left...  more »

  • Brilliant! We went when they had the mini Munch back in May. The children loved being able to paint their own canvas. Only suggestion to make it better is maybe an awning out front for the long queues waiting to go in. Otherwise perfect visit.
  • A good museum with a range of collective artworks by Munch and his closest associates. For £12 though it is rather expensive and I wouldn't really say that it's worth the money, the fact is that in the museum it states that all artworks displayed are donated by the public so therefore shouldn't a museum like this be free to enter and use as a cultural symbol for Oslo. The scream is famous worldwide and therefore think of the additional tourism free admission would create. Surely the state could fund the museum and this would also encourage more customers to buy gifts if they are able to see the exhibits for free. The facilities are of a high standard and are very clean however I cannot overlook the factors I have listed which could aid this museum and therefore I will only give 3/5.
