Very nice collection and a good way to spend a rainy day. I especially liked the layout and colors - quite modern.

One of the best Museum from Scandinavia, with a lot of paintings from national or abroad collection, Munch paintings are better then in Oslo

In retrospect, I get the various KODEs confused, but my favorite is as I recall, KODE 3 where one finds the Rasmus Meyer Collection with what may be the most comprehensive collection of Edvard Munch--I liked these galleries even more than the Munch Museum in Oslo. The collection is very strong on Norwegian artists from the 18th and 19th centuries,... More

The museum is housed in four buildings, mostly grouped on one side of the square. The collection is not huge, but is beautifully presented and contains a true breadth of art from all ages. It's nit overwhelming like the big galleries in London, Paris etc..., and can be seen in a afternoon. Most of the legends with the exhibits are... More

I appreciated how this museum was kind of cheap, 100 NOK, and also gave you the possibility to spread your visit over two visits. It spans over 4 buildings, KODE 1-4, with different time spans of the art and a specific children part (my favourite!). I also liked the Munch-paintings which has a specific style.

If you like Munch and Picasso you have yo go there. The second biggest exhibition of Munch in the world. Few masterpices of Picasso. Other paintings are also worth seeing.

Kode 2, 3 & 4 are open for visit, all on one ticket. Kode 1 with applied arts is temporarily closed. The collection is lovely, featuring a full overview of Norwegian artists with focus on Munch, Astrup, Cobra, the 70ties Bergen scene and more. Right now they feature an exhibition about textile art. We took the guided sunday tour (Norwegian).... More
