Good representation from the last two hundred years. The most famous part of the exhibition is the impressive Edvard Munch room, with the Scream as the one painting every visitor wants to see. Be sure to save some time for a coffee or tea in the cafe.

My favourite place during a 10 day driving trip to Scandanavia. You go to primarily see the Edvard Munch collection but every painting in the Gallery is worth a look, highly recommended.

beautiful works and a must see on any visit to Oslo.Large collection of Edvard Munch (even larger/ more prominent works than the Edvard Munch museum itself), as well as artists from other nations and art movements represented.

This gallery is curated very well and we all said it was the best gallery we've seen and we go to lots of galleries in Europe & the USA. This spoilt us for all the rest in Oslo. The pictures are displayed in order and have only a selection, none of this 'we have all these pictures and you will... More

This museeum was a must visit for us and people who travel to Oslo. The Scream of Edvard Munch is amazing and staying in front of it doesn't disappoint. Visitors also can find some pictures of Goya, Picasso, Monet, Manet, Gaugin, Delacroi... We liked the musseum and let you know that if you have a student ID you pay less.

Of course it features The Scream by Munch but also many more by Danish and lesser known Norwegians which we found more compelling. Lovely cafe.

A peaceful, beautiful place that you must visit in Oslo! Includes many historical paintings on the walls and ceilings and rich in history.

We were short on time, so we had to rush through the exhibits, which is not the best way to enjoy a museum. Although the museum is relatively small, we were very impressed with the collection. The staff were very nice and helpful. They do not allow you to take bags into the exhibit areas, so you must check your... More
