  • This is a small museum and actually confines itself to 3 rooms. 1 room is dedicated entirely to Munch, the other 2 also to other painters immediately a different atmosphere. The Munch works could really get us quiet, the rest was a little less our thing. When a class of schoolchildren came in, they immediately took over the small museum... Next year the museum will move to a new location next to the opera. There the exhibition will be able to grow (the museum has 30,000 pieces in possession, but only shows a very small part on today). I'm assuming that a visit after that move will be even more worthwhile.

  • Waited around 2 hours in the queue (which is OK), but it turned out that there was not so many works of art there. And Munch was a VERY productive artist himself! Looking forward to the National Gallery opening...
  • 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.
