Quite a way from the centre but I understand an amazing new building is in the offing, to be situated on the inner Harbour next... More

We did the earphones and iPod version so that we could go at our own pace and slow down/stop at those paintings we found to be extra special. Well worth the visit!

Then it went on with early word of the two and the painters they were inspired by. In an other room there were painting with the same theme that hung together.

An excellent museum.But avoid the visit in Monday. Most of the others are closed and the museum is too crowded.

Wonderful show of these two painters who lived at the same time but never met. Both suffered some kind of mental illness. Never was a fan of Munch's work but this exhibit changed my mins.
