When we visited, there was a very interesting exhibition about the connection Warhol/Munch and we thoroughly enjoyed that, on top of the "standard" exhibition. The premises themselves are well lighted, the exhibition rooms large enough to allow for good effect of the exhibits but not so large as to make them loud. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable -... More

Great quality exhibitions, wonderful collection, the stone garden is amazing I was so annoyed it was raining and I couldn't fully appreciate it. There is a great gallery of paintings from de 1800 to de 1900 (give or take) from some of the greats of that time like Edvard Munch, Johan Christian Dahl or Harriet Backer along with many others....

The museum is a real treat! Lots of interesting works of art to be seen! I have been in and out of the museum since childhood, but there is always something study more carefully. I like varied permanent exhibition very much.

I went to the Lillehammer art museum expecting a local art museum but was very pleasantly surprised at their ambitions and how successful they have been. The building is gorgeous modern, welcoming and open, excellent for its purpose. In a regional museum you expect the landscapes and the depressing old portraits. Yes, they had some of those too. They had... More

The Lillehammer Art Museum is well worth a visit. They have a splendid permanent collection from the Golden Age of Norwegian painting 1830-1930. One can easily imagine how painters from a land of white and blue and grey require an infusion of color in their paintings of landscape, genre and forays to Paris and southern Europe. When I visited there... More

Unfortunately, our visit to Lillehammer on 3rd July 2008 was brief but we were delighted to find your museum and the Edvard Munch Exhibition. Your staff were most welcoming and we thought the exhibits and paintings were displayed in a most attractive way.
