Having not been familiar with Edvard Munch outside of the scream I actually really enjoyed this museum. Much was a very emotional artist and his works are very impacting in person. There is a Admission to the Museum is covered if you have an Oslo Pass (which I also highly recommend). If you are on a limited time I would... More

The museum was smaller than we thought, but hey it's Munch so we just had to see it. No photography for "The Scream" here (while photography is allowed over at the National Gallery). Security is high - they make you go through a scan and security check before you enter the exhibition, so try to deposit most of your stuff... More

The museum is easy to get to on the Metro and well worth a visit if you want to see more than the Scream. Exhibitions change (so worth checking in advance). When we went there was a focus on nature and the environment. There are some wonderful paintings and it was great to see the complete series of some of... More

As I find fascinating all the versions of Munch's "The Scream" paintings, visiting this museum to see one of the original versions was always on my list. The museum is quite out of the way, so make sure you get proper directions to get there via public transit (easiest via the subway). I had to laugh at the excessive security,... More

Not really central but definitely worth a visit if you're a modern day artist. Under 18s get in free and students only 50 NOK. Not too big, but some really interesting objects.

I really wouldn't detour or move the schedule in order to get there. The National Gallery is far better and cheaper. The main attraction here is a black and white "Scream" painting, but you can't make photos of it. Also have have a couple of Madonnas. For 90 NOK the places tries but it falls short. My wife liked it... More

The Munch museum lies rather off-center, but is absolutely worth the effort of getting there. Depending on the location of your hotel (in our case near the main train station), you can go by foot (as we did). Both the Munch Museum and the National Gallery contain a large collection of works of Munch and have different versions (on different... More

Well... Having spent NOK 95 each to get in then found out that the 'Scream' was "Having a rest" ad therefore not on display - no signs telling you this. A complete joke and seriously unimpressed - the rest of the museum is okay - but let's be honest...everyone is there to see the scream! And some of munch's other... More

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
