National Gallery - Review

This is administrated by the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, which includes the following in various locations around the city.

  • Norwegian Museum of Architecture
  • National Gallery of Norway
  • Museum of Decorative Arts and Design
  • Museum of Contemporary Art

However, only the former two are located under this same building.

The National Gallery of Norway houses the country’s largest public collection of paintings (4000), drawings(50000) and sculptures(1000)– but none are more popular than Edward Munch’s famous Scream. The others are exhibited in the collection known as the Dance of Life, and contains works from antiquity to 1950, chronologically arranged. Brightly lit and colourfully decorated, the museum is extremely popular.

Make sure to catch a bite to eat at the elegant French Salon at the Gallery.

National Gallery, Oslo Reviews

  • Nice museum focused on paintings from artist of northern Europe with the exception of the older paintings. The highlight for most visitor will be Munch's "the scream". I discovered a lot of paintings from the Norwegian Dahl that were astonishingly beautiful! Other highlights some paintings from Cezanne, Monet and other impressionists. Long line in the middle of the morning but you can skip it if you have the Oslo pass.

  • Nice place, not many people which is also good. Each room has some information on the pieces of art within the room. Of course, “The Scream” is one of the major attractions, being behind a sheet of glass or plastic (I don’t really know), but the other pieces of art are also very interesting! You’re able to leave your bags in lockers for free.

  • A small museum, organized by periods in art, by the color of the walls and labels. local painters are shown in the way they were influenced by Impressionists like Cezanne, Gauguin, Manne and later by Matisse and Picasso. A large room is devoted to Munch’s works, including the famous "The Scream". I was surprised to see that some of the pictures have several versions that are also displayed at the Munch Museum in Oslo and in museums around the world

  • Excellent collection, very interesting. Not too crowded, even around The Scream.. Not free on Thursdays though as many books and websites will tell you. Not too big either. Toilets and lockers there as well as a well stocked gift shop and Cafe. Option for audio tour

  • Amazing museum at a good price. Beautiful works of art and a drawing room. Love that they featured sketches from the artists in certain rooms.
