“Little to see if not a Munch fan”

So while the National Gallery is showing off Munch works from June to October, those of us who came to see the permanent collection had to settle for the "highlights" which consisted of a few dozen works relegated to a couple of rooms on the first floor.

Had to pay the same regular price of 50 NOK but got to see only a fraction of the collection. Been to museums all over western Europe and have never been shut out of the permanent collection due to a special exhibition. Not impressed.

It was a rainy day, so everyone went to the gallery!. Well the line up outside was around the block, but it moved reasonably quickly. The Olso Pass gets you into the Gallery but there was supplementary fee for the Munch 150. (He was born in 1863) This exhibit elaborated on the Munch's ground breaking contributions to modern art. There was an iPhone app available for free that we used to listen to the commentary. It was very helpful in describing what we were looking at explaining the significance of the works. Of, course, the Scream was there! All great fun, especially the video in the gift shop that showed all the ways people are creating versions of The Scream in sand castles, snow sculpture, mowing patterns, pop cans, etc, etc.

Currently the national museum & the Munch museum are working showing 150 years Munch. This is really exceptional , and shows a total view of this great artist work. The lay out is great - the works are fantastic. A must for all who know Munch.
