Enjoy works of art by Edvard Munch, the artist famous for creating "The Scream." However, "The Scream" is currently located in a different museum. However, if you're an art fan or a Munch fan, you can still enjoy many paintings by Munch.

Great exhibition called “Moonrise” which compares the work of Munch with contemporary Marlene Dumas. The layout of the works compares a Munch to a Dumas and the contrast and meshing of the two works for each artist is reflexive in nature.
