    A place to satisfy your art thirst

    The facade of National Gallery

    With an impressive number of norwegian and international art pieces, featuring famous artists, the museum is definitely worth a visit.
    Allocate enough time, as there are quite lot of things to be seen.
    One of the museum stars is, of course, Edward Munch's well known masterpiece 'The Cry'.
    And, as a pleasant surprise, the entry is free.

    The Scream of course, but I also loved Munch's self portrait. There are many other lovely pictures to see, and many of them give the visitor a feel of the country of Norway. The 'Mini guide' helps provide some background to 20 or so of the pictures.

    Incidendally, the cafe served a great tea and cake, and their salads looked good too.

    The National Gallery or National Art Museum of Norway has the most complete collection of norwegian art. All we know the Scream of Edvard Munch, but here you can enjoy others of his best paint and works of others important norwegian and foreigner artist like Picasso, Van Gogh, Cezanne and many others.

    Stride up to the University and just behind it you'll find what is Norway's most important museum with exhibits of both Norwegian and international art.

    The best collections are for French paitings of 19th-20th centuries as well as for the works of Edvard Munch (1863-1944).

    Very nice place - beautiful building, to start things with. Dazzling outdoor sculptures, a beautiful archive of paintings, drawings and sculptures. Free, open ever day, always packed with tourists but definately worth a visit!

    Tip: Buy posters there!
