Edvard Munch bequeathed a large portion of his work to the city before his death in 1940, and this museum is the result. It contains books, paintings, drawings, scuptures and letters. The Munch Museums have changing exhibitions. Please see website...more

We chose to visit the Munch Museum because of its current exhibit - "The Swan Princess - Russian Art 1880-1910". A fabulous exhibition of paintings, sculpture, and textiles which explained and demonstrated the European-trained Russian artists who returned home and painted what they saw using...More

This museum is lovely...if you enjoy Russian landscapes... not painted by Edvard Munch. We genuinely enjoyed the art in the first exhibition on Russian history, and if that’s your thing- great! But we quickly found out that was about it- Bar 5 (admittedly large scale...More

A good place to buy a spectacle case, t shirt, fridge magnet, canvas bag, postcard, mug or whatever with a representation of 'The Scream' . Not a good place to actually see this painting in any of its versions, or any of its sketches, as...More

オスロ中央駅から歩いて20分くらいです。エドワード・ムンクの作品だけではなく、企画展にムンクの作品を展示するという方法で、ムンク中心に展示をされていません。また、美術館としては小規模です。ショップは充実していて、いろいろなムンクグッズがあります。It is about 20 minutes on foot from Oslo Central Station. Not only the work of Edward Munch but also the way of displaying the work of Munch at the planning exhibition, it is not displayed at the center of Munch. In addition, it is...More

I feel cheated, you can only see a few of Munch’s work not including any masterpieces like Scream or Madonna. The museum is preparing to move to a new location around Oslo Opera house in 2020 and till to that time you can only find...More

Awful visit. No Munch-paintings on display. Very disappointed, and no information given before entering the gallery.

I regret that I didn’t check the recent reviews on TripAdvisor before I visit the museum. I read some blogs that said there were loads of Munch’s works displaying in the museum. However, there is one exhibition called “The Swan Princess”. At first, I didn’t...More

How come the name of the museum is Munch museum, yet there are basically no Munch artworks. The most disappointing museum visits I have ever had. Wouldn’t suggest people attending it at least at the moment. And would incorage the museum either lower the entrance...More
