  • This museum is the largest in the world that is dedicated to one artist. Ask also the audio guide. This will give you more insight into life and works by Munch. Go to the National Museum, there is another room with works by Munch, including "the scream" and "Madonna".

  • An interesting exhibit that shows the breadth of Munch's artistry. Highly recommend to start with to see the informative movie about Munch, to get more background (we were there at opening 10 am, first screening was 10.15). Many interesting paintings, showing the breadth of Munch's creation, but it would have been nice if even "the scream" been here.

  • Really nice movie but too long. The view is great. And organized thematically rather than by which I believe intelligent periods. There is no explanation by pictures alone each year. Also available there is no catalog information. Maybe we should combine the visit to the Museum with botanical garden near So did.

  • 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.
