  • Brand new building but I found a bit unnecessary to create it with so many floors for a museum not that big. I was annoyed at the lack of a clock or knowledge by the guards when it comes to the...

  • Amazing collection of art to see and a fabulous building with commanding views over the bay. The staff were warm and friendly, as is everyone in Oslo, and keen to assist. Admission was not too expensive. Well worth a visit.
  • I should start by saying this is an art museum and only people with a passion on art can enjoy this. That said, now going into my impressions on Munch museum. It’s one of the most amazing art museum’s I’ve ever been to. I have to say, it is very huge 😅. We spent around 4hrs in the museum and could only cover 60% of it. It’s kinda hard to pick what-I-liked here. You’ll love every minute you spend in this building. Should I choose something, I loved the Munch monumental. They have dedicated 2 floors (merged in to one insanely big room) just for this section. This room had the most popular painting like The Sun, in an unimaginable size. This place is worth another visit. My wife is an artist and she said she left a part of herself in that museum. No more words.
