This is a tiny center for modern art. They have a new exhibition from time to time, all I have been to were modern art, but watchable - nothing over the top. Also, the place itself is magnificent: view, beach and yachts.

A great museum located outside Oslo. I always feel like this museum is somewhat equivalent to Louisiana outside Copenhagen - they certainly often seem to share the same exhibitions. The musem does however lack some warmth and style, meaning, I find the interior architect all...More

The museum is set in beautiful surroundings on the southwestern outskirts of Oslo. The nearby Veritas park and the walk there along the coastline is worth a while

Henie Onstad Kunstsenter is very nice locatet at Høvikodden with beautiful surroundings. The gallery has lots of different and interesting exhibitions. There is a Bølgen & Moi restaurant in the building so great to combine with lunch/dinner!

The Hennie Onstad center is situated outside Oslo about 20 km west. It is not difficult to go there but I advice you to go the Trafikanten for presise information of how to get there by train and bus.
