Munch Museum reviews
The Munch Museum collection is fantastic, of course, but the user experience leaves much to be desired. Couldn't get on the wifi without a Norwegian phone number, no discounts for seniors, confusing..... more

I really enjoy the rebel paintings of Munch, his understanding of the human psyche, as portraited, is so raw and refined at the same time. He's very Nordic in that sense

A must see for all art lovers! Great multimedia exhibition, with beautiful paintings. You can even paint your own. There are works of multiple artists to admire, not only Munch. A few made by Picasso were a great surprise. Staff is helpful and a good selection at the gift shop can give a lasting admiration for all things Munch.
Absolutely AMAZING collection. And I don't say this easily. What I love is the build up from the first floor up. Every floor is another insight of his work or related work. And the views of the City are a great bonus. A fine addition to the city of Oslo. Will definitely visit again.
