Nice place, not many people which is also good. Each room has some information on the pieces of art within the room. Of course, “The Scream” is one of the major attractions, being behind a sheet of glass or plastic (I don’t really know), but the other pieces of art are also very interesting! You’re able to leave your bags in lockers for free.
A small museum, organized by periods in art, by the color of the walls and labels. local painters are shown in the way they were influenced by Impressionists like Cezanne, Gauguin, Manne and later by Matisse and Picasso. A large room is devoted to Munch’s works, including the famous "The Scream". I was surprised to see that some of the pictures have several versions that are also displayed at the Munch Museum in Oslo and in museums around the world

Excellent collection, very interesting. Not too crowded, even around The Scream.. Not free on Thursdays though as many books and websites will tell you. Not too big either. Toilets and lockers there as well as a well stocked gift shop and Cafe. Option for audio tour
Go for the Munch paintings. Discover a few more on the route to the Munch room. Very good collection of fairy tale paintings on the ground floor. Thursday's are not free. Takes good two hours even if you want a quick visit . There are small lockers for your jackets and bags free of cost.
Nicely curated and compact museum. Most people can finish it in a hour, and for those like me who have a compulsion to go through each artwork, caption of each room, two hours are enough. You can have a glimpse of how Norwegian artists gradually developed and changed their ways to interpret arts and styles and focuses. Although the museum is not big, there are quite a few works of famed artists like Picasso, Monet, Munch... just to name a few. Worth visiting if you are in Oslo!
