Munch Museum is an art museum in Bjørvika, Oslo, Norway dedicated to the life and works of the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. The museum was originally located at Tøyen, which was opened in 1963. The museum moved to the new museum building at Bjørvika, which was opened on 22 October 2021.
Edvard Munch (12 December 1863 – 23 January 1944) was a Norwegian painter. His best-known work, The Scream (1893), has become one of Western art’s most iconic images.
The museum had in its permanent collection well over half of the artist’s entire production of paintings and at least one copy of all his prints. This amounted to over 1,200 paintings, 18,000 prints, six sculptures, as well as 500 plates, 2,240 books, and various other items. The museum also contained educational and conservation sections, and has facilities for the performing arts.
The museum has a total of 26,313 square meters, 13 floors, and 11 exhibition spaces. The Munch museum structure was designed by architects Einar Myklebust and Gunnar Fougner. Myklebust also played an important role in the expansion and renovation of the museum in 1994 for the 50th anniversary of Munch’s death. This site has also been the location of filming for an Olsenbanden-movie from 1984.
