The comparison between Mapplethorpe and Munch was more farfetched than comparisons made at earlier exhibitions. But a few separate works were amazingly like. Mapplethorpe has some outstanding photographs, but I could have been without some of them. The exhibition will last until 29th of May....More

We were frankly disapointed by this museum. There were more photographs from an American 1980s artist on display than works by Munch.More

We visited this place hoping to find The Scream painting - but it's NOT here! It's in the National Gallery. The Munch paintings at the moment are exhibited alongside photos from a photographer called Robert Mapplethorpe...a very odd combination! I won't go into details but...More

The museum is under renovation so there are just about 15 painting being exhibited. 15 minutes were more than enough to have a look. If you are looking for Munch's more famous works go to the National Gallery (The scream and The Madonna are there)More

Two great artists. One a painter. Other a photographer. Separated by a century. But the masterful curation shows striking parallels in their work.

I had a really great time, on my own, living and learning about his master pieces in a raining day in Oslo. The museum shop is an additional satisfaction to complete the day :)!

Well worth an easy ride on the subway from the city center to see the work of one of the most important contributors to art in Norway. The colabo with Mapplethorpe gives old work new meaning.

Norway`s greatest artist of all time can be viewed in this beautiful museum. The occasional comparative excibitions with Munch and some of his peers (Schiele, van Gogh, Melgaard) are interesting and controversial. The café in the museum has a beautiful outdoor sitting area. My favourite...More
