Munch Museum (Munchmuseet) Tours

226 reviews
Munch Museum (Munchmuseet)

Named and built after the Norwegian symbolist painter Edvard Munch, the Munch Museum (or Munchmuseet) first opened its doors in 1963 to commemorate what would have been the painters 100th birthday. It contains 1,200 paintings, 4,500 drawings, 18,000 prints, and 6 sculptures, watercolors, and graphic art, all bequeathed to the city of Oslo upon Munch’s death.

The museum also contains less conventional pieces of Munch’s artwork, including lithographic stones, etchings, and woodcut plates, as well as newspaper cutouts, books, and other information about the artist, further encapsulating the full career of the adored artist.

Whether you’re a fanatic or just interested in Munch’s work, you can take the experience home with you at the museums souvenir shop, complete with books, posters, shirts, and catalogs.
