Visited this weekend for the current Harald Solberg exhibition, Infinite Landscapes, a versatile exhibit of the artwork of a man who always took part in exhibitons along with other artists, and never saw a solo one. You will want to stay when through, as you...More

Good inner-city art museum, Edward Munch was far more prolific a painter than I realised, and "The Scream" was quite different to his normal style. Definitely worth a visit.

Spend some time in the National Gallery. Revel at the art or simply stay warm on a cold Oslo afternoon. The gallery has a fantastic range of art, including "The Scream" by Edvard Munch. Make sure to take the standard gasping selfie or else how...More

Not many exhibits were open. I’m not sure if it was because of the renovations but we were hoping to see more. Not a lot of Nordic culture/history, which we were really hoping to see.

Spacious museum. Lots of different paintings on display, all carefully arranged. Space to sit and just look. Need to climb stairs to access the gallery - could be a problem for those needed help. You are provided with a free map to show the different...More

I don't recall any parking there. Roads seems to be quite narrow too. Most of the major sights in Oslo can be traveled to on foot, or through the reliable bus or metro.
