Of course we all know the scream of Munch. But when I visited the exhibition about Munch with an adaptation of Madame Bovary. I suddenly am a huge fan of his work. Munch was very productive and the way he shows people, without any mercy is simply amazing and breathtaking. He really could capture the angst of human or being... More

Most of the visit was watching an informative film about Munch as there were few paintings on display - others were at the National Gallery, including The Scream!

Most of the museum was closed on the day that I went, so I was for free, as we weren't able to see much. However, the movies that were shown were quite interesting and educational

We visited on a day between two large exhibitions, which meant that most of the museum was inaccessible. In the great hall, they had selected 13 of Munchs famous paintings, showcasing the various periods in his artistic life. Because the selection was so limited, entry was free. Before seeing the paintings, you can go to their cinema, and see an... More

When we visited there were Munch vs Jorn exhibition. They got a wonderful and very representative selection of both. The security is excessive in my view. The place is one store building with number of halls, could be done in 30-45 minutes, but we returned backwards a couple of times to reflect on some Munch masterpieces.

I visited the museum on my own and it was pleasant to see most of his work. Unfortunately i couldn't see the scream.

We came looking for the Scream and great deception when we found out it was not exhibit here. It was our bad because we did not researched before. Just asumed, however, once in there, we decided to see the museum. It's interesting but nothing out of this world. Stuff were not symathetic and the place was rather small. The souvenir... More

In every folder and website advertising this museum, you will see the famous Scream, but it's NOT here! Just as most of Munch's famous paintings, it is now in the National Museum of Art Architecture and Design (also in Oslo). What you can find in this museum, are a few of Munch's less known, or completely unknown to the larger... More

It was beautiful, you can see most of his paintings but the real Scream picture was not there, it was at the National Gallery and thats a separate ticket that you have to buy, it will be helpful if you call first to find out about the original Scream Painting , they sell the replicas though

But once we went thourgh the exhibition, we learned that the painting was not there!!!! I checked the homepage of the museum, and even there the painting... More
