Description

Norway's largest public collection of paintings, drawings and sculptures are 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 og Manet.

The museum's exhibitions present older art, with principal emphasis on art from Norway. 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) has been placed in the middle of the room.

Free entry on Sundays.

The National Gallery is part of the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design.

Norwegian name: Nasjonalgalleriet
