Structurally breathtaking building on Oslo waterfront. Modern Art Museum over a few floors. Highlights were Damien Hirst exhibits, David Hockney paintings and the iconic Jeff Koons Michael Jackson & Bubbles sculpture. Well worth a hour of your time, then wander around the Tjuvholmen area.

Museum building complex by world class architect Renzo Piano. Very nice permanent art collection including Damien Hirst's works. Always high-class temporary exhibitions. The whole building with its surroundins is attractive. There is also an artificial beach with fjord views and a nice café. Top choice.

This international modern art collection is housed in a beautiful building in Aker Brygge. It is certainly eclectic with works by RB Kitaj, Damien Hirst and David Hockney & combines paintings, sculpture and installations. The views from the museum are fantastic and add to the experience of visiting.

At first the architecture of this museum is spectacular - but so is it's own collection and certainly the museum's current outreach. It's current contemporary African art exhibition is as surprising as it is ambitious, humanistic, energegic and creative. With artist like Chéri Samba, Amadou Sanogo,JP Mika,Houston Maludi, Fabrice Monteiro and Omar Victor Diep, the museum casts a long, outstanding beam of artistic courageous samples from a continent, probably unknown too most Scandinavians (including me, I must confess). Here lies a potential, that the museums curator should be applauded for inviting into the center of Oslo. The permanent art exhibition displays controversial Damien Hirst, Alex Israel, David Hockey and ain many ways grotesque porcelain sample of Michael Jackson and Bubbles. Absolutely worth experiencing.

Though being surprisingly small, the museum is intriguing with a pretty souvenir store. Worth seeing for everyone interested in art and worth walking around it to get to a small public beach. You should also consider looking for the rest of the small art galleries scattered around the museum.
