On June 11, the National Museum of Norway will open in Oslo, which will be the largest art museum in the Nordic countries.
The National Museum of Norway practically houses three museums, the collections of the National Gallery of Norway, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Museum of Decorative Arts.
In the museum you can find everything from ancient art to modern art, contemporary art, architecture and design. You can see 5,000 works distributed over two floors and almost 90 galleries.
Among the works that you will be able to see are the Baldishol medieval tapestry, Chinese imperial porcelain, Dutch and Flemish landscape paintings; and works by artists such as Van Gogh, Goya, Picasso, and Manet, as well as the latest in contemporary design and arts and crafts.
The museum will also house a selection of works by Edvard Munch, including the famous play The Scream.
In addition, rotating exhibits will be held in the museum’s Light Hall. Some of the exhibits will include works by Frida Kahlo and Wenche Selmer, as well as others that focus on Scandinavian design, queer culture, fairy tales, and gothic modernism.
The museum will also have a café, shops and a terrace with views of the Oslo harbor and fjord.
Admission is free as well as guided tours with prior reservation.
