The curators always do a really good job with the masterpieces from Munch! If you are interested in art, this a must see place, if you aren't, go there anyway, is hard to dislike his portraits!

I went to Munch, but unfortunately the time was not the best one. They were changing shows, so there was only one room with a couple of works, yet I had the chance to see it so im happy.

First thing, entrance is free with the Oslo Pass so that saved NOK 400. Currently the museum is offering a Munch and Mabelthorpe exhibition so at least 50% of the exhibits are Robert Mablethorpe photos not Edward Munch paintings / drawings. If you are looking to see "the Scream" - it's not here, or not on display. Having got over... More

I have seen the works here before but this was a wonderfully curated show using Munch's pieces and Van Gogh's and comparing their lives, contexts and artistic processes. Fascinating!

I recommend walking through the botanical gardens (even during winter) to get to this location. One of the locals brought us by tram to this part of the city and walked us through the Botanical gardens to get to the Munch Museum. The museum itself is a bit small for such an artist, but I know that they are re-locating... More

great place to go if you like art. walking into the exhibit is like walking into a vault -- dimly lit, no water allowed, metal detector... didn't know there were multiple versions of "starry night," but now I know.

Edward Munch the expressive Norwegian artist renowned for The Scream his painting that presaged 20th century angst and modernity, has his oWn museum. A film room fills you in on his life and histoRy, and the paintings and prints cover his life... Themes of love, isolation, and death, A great museum for a great artist

Unluckily for me, the museum was between two exhibitions installations, so they were only showing a very limited collection of Munch's work (16 paintings to be exact). It was free to visit for this particular reason, but if you plan to visit Oslo just for that, I recommend you check well in advance as I was sad I couldn't see... More

Thank you for coming to the Munch Museum. The museum is a small institution with limited exhibition space, so instead of closing the museum completely to the public while we are mounting new exhibitions, we have chosen to show a few of Edvard Munch's works. In 2020 a new Munch Museum will open in the Oslo harbour area of Bjørvika,... More

You really have to visit this museum. It is fantastic to see so many different aspects of Munch's work, from his sculpture to his sketches and paintings. The film room should be visited before looking around the exhibition. Don't panic that you can't see a version of the Scream here, just see it at the National Gallery and enjoy slightly... More

I guess as with a lot of cities where a museum dedicated to their most famous painter is paramount, Van Gogh in Amsterdam, Picasso Museum in Malaga, Oslo has also joined this logical trend. The entrance fee is about 100 Norwegian Kroner or free if you (wisely in my humble opinion) get the Oslo Pass. The security is heavy and... More
