There is a lot of exiting art here. If you follow the Numbers in the rooms, you start in the antique and end in the 1900. If you are in a hurry, do not visit. You easily spend loads of time here without noticing. 100 kr for adults, kids under 19 free.

Loved all of the art here. It was just the right size to keep you excited and to be able to achieve within a couple of hours, not too big or daunting like some galleries. It builds up the tension nicely, as it's towards the end that you'll find Edvard Munch's The Scream, Madonna and some lovely pieces by Picasso.... More

I took my brother here, so we ran all the way to see one of the Scream paintings. But on the way there we were suprised to see the array of amazing art works. A must see on a rainy day

The National Gallery's claim to fame is Munch's "The Scream" but the Gallery has much more to offer. Not only more munch, but also works from Picasso, Manet, Rubens, etc. a good museum, not too big, not too small. And we'll located right in the middle of town behind the university.

Of course you have to see the Scream but there are many other artists in here to see. Great visit. Especially on a cold day.

We had Oslo pass and free entrance, otherwise I would probably think twice. Not so big collection, though quite interesting. My favourite was this "glowing" painting on the photo. And I finally saw the Scream :)

Well, I fulfilled a long-held dream to see The Scream. I also spent a couple of hours looking at the rest of the small, but quality, collection, particularly the impressionist works. The audio guide was a big help. Note that it's closed on Mondays.

Big museum of art! You can easily spend 2-3 hours there. Nice art, and some famous pieces. Definitely worth a visit:)

The national museum has some beautiful paintings, by some incredible artists. Great for all the family, but I'm unsure that the attraction is wheelchair accessible. Fun for all the family.
