The National Gallery

The National Gallery closed temporarily in January of 2019, to facilitate the move to the new National Museum opening in 2020. It will remain a part of the National Museum and continue to exhibit art in the future.

In its permanent and temporary exhibitions, the museum presents older art, with principal emphasis on art from Norway. Highlights from the collection are shown in the permanent exhibition "The Dance of Life - The Collection from Antiquity to 1945". Also on display are works by international painters and sculptors, such as the French impressionsists. Central attractions include Edvard Munch's The Scream and Madonna and paintings by Cézanne and Manet.
