  • Some fantastic pieces including many know works such as the scream. The museum was preparing to move to a new location next to the opera house and as such some areas were closed. However still a great visit.
  • This is an excellent museum. Quick and efficient security, straightforward pricing, decent service availability and fair prices. The art collection is quite literally extremely unique and will easily satisfy most tastes thanks to a decent variety and beautiful artwork management. Definitely a must see.
