Astrup Fearnley Museet is a private museum and has since its opening in 1993 been one of the most important art institutions in Oslo. The museum moved to Tjuvholmen in 2012, beautifully located by the Oslo Fjord in a building designed by world-renowned architect Renzo Piano. The museum adventure starts as soon as you catch sight of the magnificent building and location, that unites art, nature and urbanity. The museum houses the Astrup Fearnley Collection, one of Norway's most important and most extensive private collections of contemporary art, with iconic works by artists such as Damien Hirst, Anselm Kiefer and Jeff Koons.

OK but like the Norwegian National Art Museum which has more to offer at a better price. Astrup Fearnley is more a art gallery than a museum in my opinion. If there is an artist you like showing there and you are in Oslo, go...More

The building is unique. The setting on the harbor is spectacular. It's a bit expensive, but the sculpture and art is worth seeing.

The building was designed by Renzo Paino who also has designed buildings in Australia (where I am from). This is perfect for modern and contemporary exhibitions as well as Masters.

Ok, super modern artsy. Older folks who came with us hated it and expected more traditional. The one that got the older family frustrated was the sink drain. It was just a regular sink drain mounted on the wall in the first part of the...More

It's modern art so you have to be open minded :-) Without giving too many spoilers, I could in the end appreciate how an exhibition played with the concept of place, and where exhibits are supposed to be, but it may not be for everyone....More
