Great collection of an iconic artist's work. So much more than 'The Scream'. You get a feeling for the artist's life and thoughts.

The gallery itself is quite standard and maybe a little clinical, but the paintings are obviously the attraction and the museum shows them off very well. It was very busy when we went there due to the 'Munch 150' exhibition and high tourist season. Still, it never felt overcrowded and there was plenty of room to sit or stand and view the paintings.

The trip there from the city centre is straightforward on the underground and it also makes a pleasant walk if you have the time - the botanical gardens across the street are beautiful too.

We walked to the Munch Museum through the botanical gardens and enjoyed it thoroughly. Do take the time to watch the video of his life before you start the visit to the museum. It is downstairs and takes about 45 minutes. It made the museum come alive. The exhibit was great and was very worthwhile.

The "Munch 150" exhibition really was good and very interesting. The location of the museum is wonderful on a sunny summer day, and I think it really is a pity they are going to move it. The paintings of Munch suit to hang close together, so the place was very good for this exhibition. The cafe is very nice on a fine day, with its big outdoor departure.

Very interesting exhibition at the Munch Museum. Apart from gorgeous paintings like "The Scream" and the "Madonna", and self-portraits at different stages of his life, I also enjoyed reading some comments made by the artist, showing that he certainly had a sense of humor (if you read Norwegian, don't miss the article about Munch's turkeys on the first board on the left at the entrance of the exhibition).
