The scream was out for maintenance but the remaining collection was spectacular and captured this effatuation with death and the body completely.

It is easy to get to the Munch Museum - located a short, well-signposted walk from Tøyen metro station. Entry was 95 NOK for adult entry, all bags larger than A4 sized must be left in the cloak room lockers (you'll need a 10 NOK coin for the lockers, which is refundable) and photography is not allowed. I went on... More

A must see, just one picture makes the visit an unmissable attraction, but other masterpieces are surely to see..

It's one of few museums in Oslo that is worth to visit. I'm not saying that the others are waste of your time but some of them are pretty boring with only few artifact at display. However, Munch museum have works well preserved and the whole concept of museum is very 'easy going'. I can only recommend the museum especially... More

It was a rainy day, so perfect for museum exploring. If you like Muensch this will be nice experience for you; Very nicely displayed; its small and can be seen in an hour, depending how much time you spend looking at each painting! There is a good collection , not complete of course , but the famous "Scream " is... More

...negatively in any way. I think a must see if you are in Oslo anyway and have the time or the weather forces you to do indoor activities. It is easy to get to with the tube and if there is nothing special going in the on in the museum, fast and easy to get in.

The Munch Museum is small and easy to see in a hour. Two if you are a big Munch fan. The main reason for my visit was to see "Scream". Photographs are not allowed. I didn't realize that there is more than one of these paintings.This painting is encased in a glass with a raw unfinished wood frame in a... More

This is a great place to spend a few hours. The museum contains one of the four original 'Scream' works, and a vast array of other infamous Munch peices such as 'Madonna'. The Museum is split into different sections, and all has an educational theme evolving around life, nature, and biology. I also really enjoyed seeing 'Ida' up close -... More

The museum was a long walk from the centre of town and our hotel. Admission was 9 GB pounds which isn't too bad but once inside it was a bit disappointing. The Scream was on display in a small separate area from the other paintings and sketches and was good to see. The museum is small so the rest of... More
