If you're looking for "The Scream," it's not here, so don't be disappointed if you don't see Edvard Munch's most famous painting on the wall; but there's a lot more to Munch than just "The Scream" and there are a lot of other paintings here...More

Museum is notthat big. Kids are free and adults pay 100kr. The introduction film has no subtitles and my Norwegian is not that good. We had to wait one hour for an English version. The information is quite scarce and by that the visit is...More

A selection of Munch's works were arranged into four rooms by theme. We found this to be a great way of learning about the artist. The audio guide did not provide an overview of all pieces, rather an understanding of the themes. It spoke about...More
