Concierge.com's insider take:
Behind the huge steel doors of this bi-level space, you'll find subdued concrete walls, barren sandstone floors, and unembellished steel-and-smoked-wood stairways. In other words, there's nothing to detract from the art displayed. And with good reason: The museum's excellent postwar collection includes works by Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Felix Gonzales-Torres, and Jeff Koons. If you speak the native tongue, guided tours are available in Norwegian every Sunday at 1 pm; otherwise a tour in English can be booked for $165 (call at least three days in advance). Admission is free.
Open Tuesdays through Fridays 11 am to 5 pm, Thursdays 11 am to 7 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 12 to 5 pm.
