I traveled from Central station which took about 10 minutes on the T-Banen. Very well signposted from the station but unfortunately the museum only had one room open to see the restoration of some of Munch's work on the day I visited as they were...More

Super cool museum and beautiful art all over the place! Once you finish touring the museum they have a shop in the main lobby that has lots of cool stuff. About 2 hours total will do.

A rather small museum with very nice remarkable pieces from Munch and Lena Cronqvist definitely worth a visit. We arrived in the middle of a snow blizzard 20 minutes before closing time, and the entrance staff and the guards were super nice to let us...More

Check carefully before visiting that the works on display are ones you actually want to see. Despite the name, this isn't a museum devoted solely to Munch, nor does it have a permanent display on the artist's life and work. If you want to be...More

We had the OsloPass so it was worth our time to go here. Easy to find. Very nice museum. We only had one day so went kind of quickly. FYI The Scream is not at this museum. We did not know that until later in...More
