Astrup Fearnley Museum Of Modern Art - Review

This contemporary art gallery focuses on Norwegian and international art. In the past the museum focused on acquiring works of German Abstract Expressionism, English modern painting, and Young British Artists, and now it begins to focus on contemporary American art. The museum may not appeal to everyone, but you never know until you visit. It’s got one of the best contemporary art collections in Europe. The building itself is beautiful. It was designed by renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano.

It’s not just the inside of the museum that’s pretty the building in which the museum is housed is located in the Tjuvholmensculpture park. Starting with seven large and very surreal pieces, the collection is now expanding. The sculptures are: 

  • ”Things for a House on an Island” by Peter Fischli & David Weiss
  • ”Eyes” by Louise Bourgeois
  • ”Edge II” by Antony Gormley
  • ”Untitled” by AnishKapoor
  • ”Untitled (Totem)” by Ellsworth Kelly
  • ”Moonrise" by UgoRondinone
  • ”Spalt” by Franz West

There is also a beach nearby you can check out, where families often picnic and children swim.

Astrup Fearnley Museum Of Modern Art, Oslo Reviews

  • This museum is located in a once industrialized area of the harbor that has recently been transformed to a vibrant mixed-use development thanks largely in part to this structure. From an architectural standpoint, it is visually interesting and the glass roof is an engineering marvel. The museum has a nice exhibition on the building itself that was very well done and informative. The permanent collection has a nice range of exhibitions, and we enjoyed our walk through. Friendly staff will answer questions and provide more insights on the works if asked. There is a free audio guide available to download, and we found it detailed and very well done. We ate lunch along the waterfront afterwards; there are numerous restaurants and food trucks to choose from. Definitely put this place on the list if you are visiting Oslo!

  • The museum is - as it is described on their website - a collection of some random works - random not in term of quality of course, but in term of the lack of a certain red thread throughout the exhibition or a focus on a certain movement etc. There are some beautiful works (that's very personal of course), but for me honestly the price is too high for such a little to show. I've been to several museums around the world, especially for modern art and I definitely wouldn't have went to this one, had I known they had only a few exhibits. The building is very nice though and the location is astounding.

  • Sculpture Park and Art Museum, what a perfect combination with symbiotic and art infused energetic experience in a perfect setting by the water. Finally, contemporary architecture in Oslo, engaged me and allowed me to embrace Oslo, as compared to some of the earlier buildings like the City Hall. Uniform glazing system for the roof form and local wood cladding for exterior vertical surfacing, did it for me. It’s the simple palette of materials and consistency of its applications, with rigor, purity and bold expressions that results into creative architectural experiences that appeals to my taste. Great project, amazing setting and sensitivity to human experiences sets this project apart.

  • Great gallery with interesting exhibits across both buildings (they share a roof). The site itself is a testament to the art it holds and the sculpture park with a 'beach' on the fjord is lovely as sunset especially. Check which building closes first, and adjust your route accordingly, to ensure you manage to see everything you hope to before it does.

  • Nice modern Art museum. The building and the surrounding park and view are a must see for anyone coming to Oslo. The second floor has an exhibit where the plans and models of the museum are incorporated, very nice, quite meta. Not all exhibits are for everyone, it is Modern Art. I would not recommend to bring young children for a tour but as I mentioned the surrounding area and the building itself is a must see. You might notice I added quite a few pictures but almost none of the art. Please visit this clean and gorgeous museum to see the exhibits.
