“Many paintings”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

The national gallery is where you see many paintings that represents the country art history. It is a great place but I like to go to the separate exhibitions more as there is a story behind, a path to follow.
I found the National Gallery a suite of many rooms and not being art student, difficult to get most out of it.
But the building is great, and of course the huge painting collection.

“Worth a visite if you want to see Munch”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

As a Norwegian collection the National Gallery is worth a visite, but if you have been to the great galleries in the big european capitals you will find it a bit provincial. An exception is the gallerys collection of paintings of Edvard Munch. If you enjoy this artist, it's worth going simply to wacht those.
