Nothing special, but if you are interested in Munchs life, it is worth visiting. It was here the famous shot was fired, by Tulla Larsen.

I'm not so familiar with Munch but the museum guide introduces his story and house very elaborate. After knowing his thinking and life, I like him more and can understand why the way he painted changed so much. (Tuesday is free to visit)
