We expected to see a full permanent collection alongside the temporary exhibit on offer during our visit, so that was a bit of a disappointment. However the exhibit was a really interesting and unique presentation of Munch's work, which we quite enjoyed. Those expecting to see "the Scream" or other famous works should ask ahead of time at the ticket... More

We visited this on our first full day in Oslo. Norway's most famous artist whom I'd heard of, mainly for the picture The Scream (which I liked a lot). And, although this work wasn't there, there was a lot of other work that helped explain him a lot better. Feels like he wasn't a particularly happy chappie! Nice café, too,... More

I love exploring art galleries and when in Oslo I wanted to see the Munch Museum, to see some of his other work. The museum is a few metro stops from central station, located in a nice park and is very well sign posted. I entered and was immediately confused by a sign saying to visit the cinema first which...

So excited to be coming here but found it a great disappointment. Movie was great, spend the time to watch this, but there were not really a lot of paintings on display. Vast open gallery with a lot of bare walls. I think this is for Munch fans only.

Of course we all know the scream of Munch. But when I visited the exhibition about Munch with an adaptation of Madame Bovary. I suddenly am a huge fan of his work. Munch was very productive and the way he shows people, without any mercy is simply amazing and breathtaking. He really could capture the angst of human or being... More

Most of the visit was watching an informative film about Munch as there were few paintings on display - others were at the National Gallery, including The Scream!

Most of the museum was closed on the day that I went, so I was for free, as we weren't able to see much. However, the movies that were shown were quite interesting and educational

We visited on a day between two large exhibitions, which meant that most of the museum was inaccessible. In the great hall, they had selected 13 of Munchs famous paintings, showcasing the various periods in his artistic life. Because the selection was so limited, entry was free. Before seeing the paintings, you can go to their cinema, and see an... More

When we visited there were Munch vs Jorn exhibition. They got a wonderful and very representative selection of both. The security is excessive in my view. The place is one store building with number of halls, could be done in 30-45 minutes, but we returned backwards a couple of times to reflect on some Munch masterpieces.
