Building a new future for the arts

In line with our vision, Building a new future for the arts, the modernisation and expansion of the museum will contribute to raising the importance of the visual arts in Norway.

 

 Both the new museum’s location and its strength as an “all-arts” ­museum will in themselves enhance the fields of art and design.

"The visual arts will become more accessible than they are today, and more appealing to a broader audience. In addition, the museum will grant Oslo and Norway a more pronounced international position within the visual arts. I look forward to welcoming you to the new National Arts Museum in Oslo." Audun Eckhoff, Director at The National Museum
