Munch Museum


Munch Museum



Spend a day admiring the beautiful masterpieces of Edvard Munch in the newly constructed Munch Museum in Oslo.


Known as Munchmuseet locally, the Munch Museum has a wide collection of Edvard Munch's artwork, including some of his famous works, like, ‘Vampire’, ‘Anxiety’ and the most iconic of them all 'The Scream'. The Munch Museum was set up in 1963 at Tøyen and had a permanent collection of over half of Munch's paintings and at least one copy of the prints. The organizers keep changing the exhibits at various intervals as there is a lot of variety in Munch’s work. You will also find books, sculptures, and many other items here. You have tours both in English and Norwegian. Also, a short film about the painter’s life is shown throughout the day. Outside the museum, you have a shop that sells products inspired by Munch's art. A popular restaurant group, MUMA, can be found within the premises for those who want to grab a bite before heading to the museum. There was a proposal for a new site (on the waterfront, next to Oslo Opera House) in 2008. The project was finalised and completed by the end of 2020 and will be open to the public in autumn 2021.
