The permanent exhibition contains a very comprehensive collection of Norwegian 'golden age' painters in the last part of the nineteenth century with Hertervig and Kitty Kielland as excellent examples. The modern art collection was less impressive. At the time of the visit a temporary exhibition on Edvard Munch was exposed in collaboration with Berlin Art Museum. This was an impressive part of the visit. Very few visitors were in the museum the Saturday we visited, which may be due to the time being out of season. This is a pity as the museum is absolutely worth visting. A little minus is given because of access difficulties for visitors arriving in cars. Better signs for finding parking facilities would help. Also inside it would help with a little sign indicating 'tickets' at the ticket counter.
