  • We enjoyed our visit despite the museum being in transition mode. We were lucky to see the Scream. An iconic and well known work. I’ve often felt like that! Having said that, there are plenty of...  more »

  • A small museum housing many of Munch's artwork and a few other Norwegian artists. I expected more art pieces; but, the visit was still a lovely opportunity to see The Scream and familiarize myself...  more »

  • Brilliant! We went when they had the mini Munch back in May. The children loved being able to paint their own canvas. Only suggestion to make it better is maybe an awning out front for the long queues waiting to go in. Otherwise perfect visit.
  • A good museum with a range of collective artworks by Munch and his closest associates. For £12 though it is rather expensive and I wouldn't really say that it's worth the money, the fact is that in the museum it states that all artworks displayed are donated by the public so therefore shouldn't a museum like this be free to enter and use as a cultural symbol for Oslo. The scream is famous worldwide and therefore think of the additional tourism free admission would create. Surely the state could fund the museum and this would also encourage more customers to buy gifts if they are able to see the exhibits for free. The facilities are of a high standard and are very clean however I cannot overlook the factors I have listed which could aid this museum and therefore I will only give 3/5.
  • Pretty much expecting "the real" the scream painting. Well, they have other (the second version if im not mistaken). But its a pleasant museum to really know Edvard Munch and his other paintings, which is also brilliant!
  • Be careful while planning to visit museum from 2020 - they said that the whole exposition is moving to a new location, so search for the detailed info in advance! By the way, if you feel sympathy for Norwegian art (or in general - for its beautiful and unique culture) - the visit totally worth it!
  • Nice museum but quiet small. In spring 2020 they will have a much larger space. Looking forward to visit again then. Great collection of Munch paintings and his belongings.
