The house is now a small museum, open to the public where everything has been retained as it was when the artist lived there. The original studio building has been pulled down, but another building has been erected on the same site.

Nothing special, but if you are interested in Munchs life, it is worth visiting. It was here the famous shot was fired, by Tulla Larsen.
