The world's number one destination for experiencing Edvard Munch's life and art

MUNCH's collection, left to the city of Oslo by the artist himself, consists of paintings, graphical prints and drawings. It is the largest collection of art by one single artist. Edvard Munch has a unique position among Nordic painters and is considered a pioneer in expressionism.

In addition to Munch's art, world class contemporary art is exhibited in the 13 floor building. By constantly changing the exhibitions, the museum make sure that one can always experience something new during a visit there, such as solo exhibitions honouring the winners of the Edvard Munch Art Award.

Artistic and cultural events are also figuring on MUNCH's calendar.

The monumental museum by the Oslo Fjord offers three place to have a bite of food or a drink: Munch Deli & Café, Bistro Tolvte and Kranen Bar.

In the museum shop you will find gift items, products for children, literature about Munch and other unique products inspired by Munch's art.
