Oslo is the only place where you can appreciate Munch ´s pictures. There are no many pieces but a worth a visit. If your a fan of impressionists paintings you can´t miss his own home.

Spent an hour here after walking there from central station-not the safest of areas! Museum worth it though, really interesting and i'm not normally a big art fan. Walked back through nice botanical gardens which are also worth a look.

We watched the film on Munch's life in the downstairs auditorium before viewing the collection. It really helped us understand where all the emotion and technique were coming from and also how his focus and style changed over the course of his life. The Sophie painting was not on exhibit (or I missed it!), and that was a disappointment. Interestingly,... More

I am crazy for Munch. And I do not need to explain this. So I when some business brought me to the neighbourhood of Oslo, I took the opportunity to vist my friend's grave. I call it a grave and not a house, because Munch - I am sure - would have used the same work, so much fascinated he... More

A bit disappointed to see the Madonna painting was not exhibited during my visit. The museums exhibits change periodically. Here you can enjoy most of Edward Munch's work, including one version of "the scream", the rest are displayed in the National Gallery. Note that you can't take pictures of "the Scream" though.

One of the original versions of The Scream is housed here (another at the National Museum) and it was interesting to see. Other than that, I found his works to be in many cases dark and disturbing. I guess it is an acquired taste and I just don't have it. If you appreciate Munch's works then I am certain you... More

Knew of 'the scream' painting and was of course thrilled to see this at the museum. Really knew little of this artist prior to visiting museum but actually found notes informative, concise and clear, a lovely, quiet and calm ambiance within museum and a delight to visit ....
