Astrup Fearnley Museet is a private museum and has since its opening in 1993 been one of the most important art institutions in Oslo. The museum moved to Tjuvholmen in 2012, beautifully located by the Oslo Fjord in a building designed by world-renowned architect Renzo Piano. The museum adventure starts as soon as you catch sight of the magnificent building that unites art, nature and urbanity. The museum houses the Astrup Fearnley Collection, one of Norway's most important and most extensive private collections of contemporary art, with iconic works by artists such as Damien Hirst, Anselm Kiefer and Jeff Koons.

Not a big collection but big art pieces from the worlds top iconic artisits. Some challenging sexual and political works, interesting to see what the creative art world is up to. An incredible building for sure, bu the collection is easily accessible in an hour and worth the admission.

Went there for murakami by murakami (Japanese art) and I fell in love with the museum. Ended up with a membership. Looking forward to seeing the Chinese art.

This was an hour of my life I'll never get back - and that includes 30 minutes of waiting to get in, which turned out to be the best part. Don't waste your time!

Excellent architecture, perfect location, excellent exhibitions (both their permanent collection and the temporary Takashi Murakami exhibition were great). It will be crowded in the afternoon.

I didn't expect to like the exhibit but want to visit the museum and the permanent collection. Turns out I like the temporary exhibit better than the permanent one: never put brakes on art appreciation!

On the harbour facing the sea, the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art is in two connected buildings designed by Renzo Piano and is an anchor to the successful redevelopment of the waterfront district of Aker Brygge, which is a popular area of cafes and bars with new office and residential developments, perhaps showing what could be possible in due...

We found the museum in the new section of Oslo Harbour, called Tjuvholmen. This small area, partly man made on stilts by the sea, oozes of modern architecture and expensive restaurants, art galleries, law offices, etc. And the Astrup Fearnley fit in well, design by the famous architect Piano, and containing fascinating modern art.

We were there to watch the Murakami exposition which was excellent. We spent 1,5 hours in the museum and we were caught short of time as the museum was closing at 17.00, and at a certain point we just heard a message that we had to leave immediately, and therefore we could not see everything. I would suggest that the... More
