  • Not the famous painting the scream, that is in the National Gallery. It is a small museum and has very colorful pictures. Above all the portraits. Recommended

  • In the Munch Museum you will find a beautiful overview of the work of Edvard Munch. You can see his development and his experiments with various styles. Sometimes you see agreements with Van Gogh, but there is also a collection of prints in a very different style. Munch's best-known works (the scream and Madonna) hang out here not. For that you need to the National Museum. Nevertheless, this museum is well worth a visit.

  • Three or four rooms with works by Munch, notice that the cry is not in this museum. The Museum applies with the Oslo pass. Large bags and backpacks must be left in a slogan.

  • Good show. Love the fact they have sensory images for the blind. The museum is wheelchair friendly , you will need the staff to lower ramps in auditorium.
  • The scream wasn't on display when I visited so I was a little disappointing; however, the remainder of Munch's work was certainly worth the visit. Viewing the works in chronological order and reading about the artist's life was very interesting.
  • A hundred minor Munch canvases presented without labels or context in four rooms. You can see everything in seven dull minutes, during which you may mull over the many better ways to spend US$14. Oslo's National Gallery has all the famous paintings, and the KODE museum in Bergen tells much more about the artist.
  • Amazing collection. My knowledge of Munch was only about his masterpiece. In this exhibition it's possible to learn the fine art of great Norvegian Painter.
  • Nice little museum. They do have a insane number of prints and paintings but not enough place to show them all, including some masterpieces when they have temporary exhibits. Too bad they don't announce what's actually on display on their website!

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.
