I visited at exactly the right time for me. My two favorite painters are Munch and Van Gogh, and when I visited Oslo, the Munch museum's exhibition was a comparison of the artists. It was probably my favorite thing (besides the Oslo Running tour) I did while in Oslo.

There was a combined Van-Gogh and Munc exhibition. The size was great-possible to get impressed and not being overwhelmed. Next to each picture there was a short passage-exactly the right amount of words to help and not to flood. it continues till september 2015.

I loved this museum., The exhibit featured artwork by Edvin Munch to Vincent Van Gogh, and compared the 2. I had gone to The Van Gogh Museum 2 years ago, and I thought it was an interesting comparison. It was fun to see if I could figure out who painted what. I was right most of the time. In my... More

This little museum is definitely worth a stop if you like art and paintings. Normally the world-famous painting 'the scream' is here on display but when we were there it was for a short period in Paris. We didn't complain though because as a replacement we could see some famous paintings of Van Gogh, including 'Starry Night Over the Rhone'... More

Beside 'the Scream', we had little knowledge of Munch as an Artist. Therefore our visit to Oslo gave us the opportunity to seek for more understanding of this artist and the history behind his paintings. The museum had in the month of May, 2015 arranged the gallery with the paintings of Van Gogh together with Munch and traced their active... More

Apart from The Scream, none of us were particularly familiar with the work or life of Edvard Munch. However that did not stop us thoroughly enjoying the visit; the museum is in a modern but unattractive building slightly out of the city centre, an easy metro ride from our hotel. The museum has a large number of exhibits of which... More

Current exhibition comparing Edvard Munch's paintings with Vincent Van Gogh was stunning. There is about 10 years difference in age. There are many simiarities such as the influences of the impressionists in Paris. I have seen lots of exhibitions and this was a stand out.

We visited the Munch Museum on a rainy day in Oslo. The subway brought us a short distance from the main entrance, and we checked our water bottles at the door. We were there in June, when Van Gough was featured with Munch. The showcase was phenomenally curated. The selected pieces clearly illustrated how innovative and influential both artists were...
