Norway's largest public collection of paintings, drawings and sculptures is found in the National Gallery, established in 1837.
The gallery's central attractions include Edvard Munch's The Scream and Madonna, and paintings by Cézanne and Manet.
The permanent exhibition shows highlights from the collection and national icons from the romantic period until the mid-1900s. Also on display are works by international painters and sculptors, including the French impressionists.
In the Fairy Tale Room you meet princesses, trolls and other fairy tale creatures from the museum’s extensive collections. In the new Drawing Room you can experiment with soft and hard pencils. To inspire you, Gustav Vigeland's sculpture Mother and Child (1907) is placed in the middle of the room.
The entry ticket is also valid on the same day at the National Museum - Architecture, the National Museum of Contemporary Art and the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design.
Free entry on Thursdays.
