The Munch collection shares space with two other artists, Cronquist (very psychological and mental) and Bjorlo( more metallic and cranial). They are interesting to see, but if you are going there to see Munch’s “Scream” the skip this one and just head to the National...More

We visited this museum expecting to see a gallery of work by Munch. That is not unreasonable considering it's called the Munch Museum! Instead 66% of the gallery is given over to other artists all of which are so bad as to only highlight the...More

There is an exhibition at the moment, two contemporary artists alongside Munch paintings they have chosen. As most visitors from abroad come here to see Munch, this is really annoying and disappointing. I couldn’t really get into the other two artists on show. There was...More

Unfortunately for us, the museum was showing two contemporary artists alongside selected works by Munch. All well and good, one might say, but as the museum is small, it meant that we did not see much by the master, and what we did see was...More
