Why locals love it

Works from the classical era through the renaissance, impressionism and into the cubist and modernist movements. What's unique is that they exhibit works from Norwegian artists beside the European painters who influenced and often taught them. It's amazing to see how Norwegian artists make the cubist style their own.

Why you should visit it

Confusingly, Munch's most famous paintings, The Scream and Madonna, are not found at the Munch Museum, but here at the National Gallery surrounded by many of his other works from the impressionist period. Tickets are relatively cheap at 50kr and entry is free on Sundays. Give yourself 1-1.5 hours to take a leisure walk through the exhibition halls.

Special tip

Lockers are free, but require a 20kr deposit (why carry your stuff when you don't have to). Ask for a key when you buy your ticket.

It’s unfortunately closed down. Most of the artwork will be moved to the new National museum that opens some time in 2020.
