    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.

    Enjoyed the Munch exciting curated by Knausgård very much. Excellent guiding by Nikita Matias. Great to get new perspectives on a well know artist.

    Nice museum to visit. I have been visiting this museum several times during the years and it is always ok to come back here. The work of Munch is always great to watch.

    First you watch a video of various artists talking about Munch's artworks and it was incredibly insightful. Though it did give you an illusion that you would be seeing the same exact paintings in the museum. Later it turned out most of his well-known works are displayed in the National Gallery of Norway..

    Everything you'll want to ever know about Edvard Munch and then some. If you're a fan, the tour will be great.... Accomplished in about an hour. If you're not, it may be too much of a good thing.

    Good collection of Munch paintings, mostly of his later period. One disappointment: non of his The Scream paintings were on display. According to guard they have two stored away, and the others are on display at other museums.

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.
