Probably my favorite museum in Oslo with a beautifully curated exhibition comparing Munch and Van Gogh. It was fascinating to learn how these two men, who never met, had such parallel lives.

Take the nr 5 subway east fm Jernbanetorget 2 stops. Good signage for 5 min walk to Munchmuseet. Well organized exhibit. Liked the special show this summer with van Gogh and Munch. Have a cup of tea after with a Norse treat. A delightful time.

Highly innovative and a outstanding exhibition showing the similarities in Munch and Van Gogh. Even though they never met, they share a lot in their expression. Highly recommended for everyone.

The security system to get in is that of an airport. No drinks or food, no backpack, scanner for your phone/jackets etc. There are lockers downstairs (you get your money back afterwards) where you can store your belongings, unless they are too big. The museum itself is very much what you would expect of a Munch exhibit (we were lucky... More

The museum can be reached by taking the metro to the Toyen stop and walk a short distance to get there. We visited the place in July and the indoor air conditioning was adequate, not all indoor facilities have adequate AC in Oslo. During our visit, there was an exhibition on Van Gogh, the two artists were being compared chronologically,... More

We were lucky to visit when the museum had the Van Gogh paintings. The museum is quite small but there was a lot to see.
