If you are an art lover like me, you must visit this place. Beautiful paintings form well known painters, nice atmosphere, great exhibitions and nice museum shop... Would visit again! :)

Whilst some of the exhibitions were typically a bit pretentious this gallery is a great place just to be in for a few hours. The newer part of the building is a stunning space. The cafe was a cool, chic but relaxed place too.

Compared with the Norway National Art Museum, this one is very disappointing. It has a few quality Nordic works, some Fauvists, one Picasso, a few Braques. For the admission of about US$ 18, it didn’t seem to me worth the price or the effort.
