They still charged 100 NOK for entrance, but about Munch they said... "come back later. We shall have everything in one building, then." Well, I guess once that happens it will be great, but what about in-between?!
There were some other fine paintings on display, though.

I would rate this museum five stars if I wasn't a bit confused about what was what. One of the museum buildings was closed during our visit, and I don't know whether what we saw in the other was all inclusive or not--hence my waffling. Still, there was a very interesting exhibit of Nikolia Astrup, an early quasi-impressionist, and several very interesting Munchs also, and I would recommend visiting it.

You get a ticket for all four museums, except that, when I went, the modern collection was closed. Some interesting exhibits, including an installation by Ai Wei Wei. However, the design museum is worth the price of the ticket alone. Good cafés.

There are 3 galleries in close proximity, the other 2 being the Rasmus Meyer which has several Munch, and the Stenersen which has temporary exhibitions and we went for a coffee. The large gallery has a ggod collection of Norwegian and other art over the centuries. We tend to just visit the 19th/20thC galleries which appeal to our taste.

it was a nice visit, interesting collection of nordic art. It's worth a visit of a couple of hours including the temporary exhibition
