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".
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.
The Fairy Tale Room has art depicting princesses, trolls and other fairy tale creatures, and in The Drawing Room you can test your sketching skills while drawing inspiration from Gustav Vigeland's sculpture "Mother and Child" (1907).
