I guess I didn't do my research well. I expected a little more paintings, so this museum wasn't quite my thing. But if you are interested in northern Norwegian art in all different styles, this museum is absolutely worth a visit. Oh, and it's free!More

Hi Mila! Thanks for visiting and writing a review! We take pride in presenting different styles and at the moment the temporary exhibition Intersections, which is very painting-free, dominate the museum. But you can come back next summer, when a new temporary exhibition is up,...More

Went to this on one of our off days. It has some really impressive art throughout and given its free entry and lovely staff id highly suggest you make the trip.

Thank you for your visit, the review and the recommendation. However, starting January 1st 2019, entry will cost NOK 80. I'm adding this to your review to help spread the word. I hope that's OK with you.

One does not essentially expect such a good museum at such a location. It houses a small but exquisite collection of modern and contemporary art with a focus on impression of the North and arctic artists. On top, admission is free. Very much recommended.

On the first floor there were two separate pieces of art or something that was just a circular pile of dirt. One had clear boxes surrounding it with God knows inside them. The rest are a few pictures and some hanging craft work. It got...More

First of all it's free second of all they have amazing art in there. Both classic and contemporary. 15th century and 2000s in the same room. Absolutely beautiful I was and am beyond impressed with this space.

While the paintings of the Arctic and the work of an indigenious, Britta are well worth the visit, the surrealism section is less so!
