Tel: 47 33 08 21 31's insider take:

In 1897, Edvard Munch bought this quaint fisherman's cottage in the seaside village of Aasgårdstrand to use as both home and studio. The restless bohemian artist inhabited many places during his life, but noted in his diary that this was "the only pleasant house that I have lived in." Today, Munch's former studio has been renovated and is used as a gallery for a number of his works, including Girls on the Jetty, The Dance of Life, Melancholy, and The Fairy Tale Forest.

Open Saturdays and Sundays 11 am to 6 pm May through September; Tuesdays through Sundays 11 am to 6 pm June through August.
