  • I heard that Munch's "cry" is on display here, so I went there, but it was under construction or closed. However, according to the bulletin board, "Cry" is on display at the Munch Museum, and i think it is good news for Munch fans.

  • I didn't know what it was, but it was very difficult to see that the outside of the building was closed. There were a few tourists wandering around who didn't know it was closed like us. The new museum is said to open in 2020.
