Interesting but far! You can reach this gallery by bus, but it's not very fast. Is better to go there in the summer, not in the winter, cause then you can see all exposition, also outside and only inside. There is very beautiful fjord view around, so it can be more interesting during the summer!

One of the of Norway's best painters and his paintings should be a must for everyone that visit the Oslo area this summer. I was there last Tuesday afternoon and not many people there then (open to 7 pm on Tuesdays and Wednesday). His sense of beauty, colors, lights and (spring) paintings from the western part of Norway are unbelievable.

We took the 151 bus from the Central Station and were at the museum 20 minutes later. It was a good idea to come to Henie-Onstad on a sunny day as we managed to enjoy a lunch on the museum's terrace, overlooking the bay and later walked along the shore back to the bus stop.

Now an exciting Kusama art exhibition. Sonja Henie history and trophy collection is always there, and most often some of the museum's collection of art. Wonderfully situated by the bay. A walk around the museum provides many interesting sculptures to see. Nice place for a coffee.

My wife and I went to this exhibition. Easy to park outside of the art center and the weather was good :). This exhibition in itself was an incredible journey to Kusamas inner parts. What a mysterious mind that has created all this art. I specially liked her installations and also her latest work, the big, colorful paintings. One of... More
