  • Regretfully, the museum was closed. Munch's paintings were ceded for an exhibition in London.

  • If you have the Oslo pass, this place is free and worth a visit - if only to see the scream pretty up close.  more »

  • I caught The Swan Princess Russian art exhibition and that was pretty nice and informing. Though many people come here to see The Scream and other more famous paintings of Munch, unfortunately they cannot bee seen here at the moment, as they are being moved over to the new Munch museum by the Opera. Although I would've liked to see more of his work (there wasn't a lot of it at the time of my visit) I still had a good time.
  • Well, the main problem there is the fact that filming and shooting photos are forbidden, so no memories from visiting that one, except, maybe some incredibly expensive souvenirs from the inner shop. If you are not familiar with that particular artist and his paintings, I'd recommend just to skip this attraction and save yourself some money and time.
