Concierge.com's insider take:
Upon his death in 1944, Edvard Munch left his remaining artwork to the city of Oslo, and this museum was built in 1963 to house his 1,100 paintings, 4,500 drawings, and 18,000 prints. The collection includes all of Munch's most famous paintings, including The Scream, Vampire, Madonna, and The Sick Child, as well as woodcuts, lithographs, and photographs. The gift shop offers all the Munch souvenirs you could imagine—from alarm clocks and bars of soap emblazoned with The Scream to cuff links featuring the Madonna motif. In July and August, public guided tours are held in English daily at 1 pm; private tours can be arranged by calling 47-23-49-35-00 or e-mailing email@example.com.
Open Tuesdays through Fridays 10 am to 4 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 11 am to 5 pm, September through May; daily 10 am to 6 pm June through August.
