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

  • Go for the Munch paintings. Discover a few more on the route to the Munch room. Very good collection of fairy tale paintings on the ground floor. Thursday's are not free. Takes good two hours even if you want a quick visit . There are small lockers for your jackets and bags free of cost.

  • Nicely curated and compact museum. Most people can finish it in a hour, and for those like me who have a compulsion to go through each artwork, caption of each room, two hours are enough. You can have a glimpse of how Norwegian artists gradually developed and changed their ways to interpret arts and styles and focuses. Although the museum is not big, there are quite a few works of famed artists like Picasso, Monet, Munch... just to name a few. Worth visiting if you are in Oslo!

  • Loved it. Stumbled in there on my way somewhere and I wish I could've stayed longer! Great not-so-popular but nonetheless great paintings and sculptures by some of the greatest artists. From the top of my head I could name Monet, Mondrian, Rodin, Munch, Picasso.l, Gougin, etc. Some great Norwegian painters. Also, the staff was really friendly and helpful! I stayed there for two hours and I am thinking of going back.

  • Like almost every gallery, full of art and culture. I must say that the staff was not very kind in my visit, but nothing very bad anyway. Please do not forget to look for "The Scream", Edvard Munch. That was the main reason why I visited this gallery, but once there I felt in love with all the art they have.

  • If you want to see Munch (original and one of the best paintings), and other Norway's greatest artists - GO GO GO. Also there's always new exposition of modern art. And one of the best gift shop.
