  • Located a little further away from the city centre, the Museum exhibits works by Edvard Munch, one of the forerunners of Impressionism and Expressionism and Norway's most recognized painter. In it are exhibited the works: "The Scream", "Madonna", "Starry Night" and "The Kiss". In addition, the Museum has works by other artists such as Amaldus Nielsen, Harriet Backer, Ludvig Ravensberg, Teddy Røwde, Jakob Weidemann and Johan Berner Jakobsen. The ticket costs NOK 120 and only recommend it to those who really like art or are fascinated by the work of Edvard Munch. It's very small! The Museum will soon be transferred to a state-of-the-art building in the Bjørvika district, so when planning the trip, keep an eye on them!

  • The paintings on display were of course incredible, but it didn't seem like there were very many of them. We also found the layout of the place confusing. I guess there is no permanent collection, only one or two particular exhibitions. The cafe does make a lovely spot to sit outside with some good coffee and snacks.
