Create an itinerary including Astrup Fearnley Museet
Discover one of the most significant private collections of post-war and contemporary art in Northern Europe at Astrup Fearnley Museet. The permanent collection, once dominated by paintings and sculptures by American and European artists, now features art from India, Japan, China, and Brazil as well. The museum's three pavilions sit against the waterfront backdrop in a neighborhood that used to house docks and shipyards. Notice how the maritime theme is reflected in a sail-shaped glass roof and mast-like steel columns. The museum also features strange works, like a cow split in half and submerged in formaldehyde by controversial British artist Damian Hurst. Add Astrup Fearnley Museet and other attractions to your Oslo trip itinerary using our Oslo tour itinerary maker tool.

  • Had a great experience. Being an art lover this a must do thing which is always in my list. Various types of art, its a wow and really appreciable work, so so creative. Love the 3D painting, charcoal work, painting which looked like a cloth material, then loved the lockers work, and MJ, the animal room, there are so many work. The sounds coming from dresses. Then there was previous personality person DNA list with there Marks. I mean it's first time i have seen this. Overall i had great experience. 👏👏
  • Interesting building in beautiful location. However, the exhibition is a bit minimalist in terms of how little is too see in a huge space, I had hoped for more. Saying that, the artworks are made for the big spaces and make their impact best that way.
