National Museum

The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo is a Norwegian national museum established on 1st July 2003 by the merging of The Museum of Architecture, The Museum of Art Industry, National Galleries, The Museum of Decorative Arts and Design, The Museum of Contemporary Arts and The National Gallery of Norway.

The National Museum collects, preserves, displays and conveys the largest collection of art, architecture and design in the country. Its collection contains up to 400 thousand works of art. Its opening is set for next year. Items depicting design, arts and crafts, visual arts, as well as contemporary art, will all be displayed next to one another, merging exhibits which had previously been separated into three different museums. Apart from this, visitors will be able to see the most famous works by Edvard Munch, such as The Scream (1893) and The Madonna (1894).

The new museum will have a great, well-lit hall at the top of the building, which will be used for temporary exhibits of international importance. The building was designed by Kleinhues + Schuverk Gesellschaft von Architekten. Great attention was paid so that the Museum fits the style of its immediate surroundings, buildings and monuments. The roof balcony will provide a unique view of the nearby fjord, and in front of the Museum will me a square with benches and a café for the visitors to take a break after visiting the museum.

The Museum is currently closed for reorganization.
