Sadly my understanding of Edvard Munch's work is limited to the Scream (which you won't find here), so we welcomed the opportunity to explore more of his work. Needless to say, we couldn't have picked a better place even if the museum is in the process of relocating.
Many people head to Munch Museum to see the famous Scream but the National Gallery houses the painting. Edvard Munch has a unique position among Nordic painters and is considered a pioneer in expressionism. The Munch Museum’s collection consists of paintings, graphical prints, and drawings.
Wonderful museum with Munch's greatest pieces. The physical space of the museum is a bit shabby (which was surprising), but his works are the attraction. I imagine once the new location opens, that point will be moot. Also, when I went (June 2017), The Scream was not on display.
The Munch Museum is home to more than half of Edvard Munch's paintings and most of his print motifs. It is currently displaying Munch's work alongside different artists - I saw a dual exhibition based on a collaboration between two of the world's leading monographic museums; the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Munch Museum.
The Munch Museum has one of the four renditions of the famous Scream picture, two of which are paintings. One of the paintings is here. It used to be easier to steal this painting, but I think they clamped down on the security after one was stolen from the National Museum and one was stolen from the Munch Museum.
