  • The Munch Museum has the world's largest collection of Edvard Munch's works, and provides insight into the artist as a pioneer of expressionism. Edvard Munch has a unique position among Nordic painters and is considered a pioneer in expressionism. The Munch Museum's collection, left to the city of Oslo by the artist, consists of paintings, graphical prints and drawings. By constantly changing the exhibitions, the museum presents the variety in his production.
  • Do you like art? Actually I'm not a fans of it. But if you come to Oslo, this is will be one of your destination must to visit guys. Enjoy your trip.
  • The exhibits are okay, but it's really great just because of the museum shop, restaurant and having the park and botanical gardens right there. Great neighbourhood to spend an afternoon, including the museum...
  • Interesting museum about the Norwegian artist Munch. The videos about his life and works are very informative. Good selection of his art work through all mediums. A museum on the Oslo Pass list and an easy bus or subway ride to get to.
  • This is a great museum showing the breadth of Munch's paintings. The audio guide was not worth it.
