The Munch Museum is a monographic art museum, dedicated to the life and work of the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. In our museum at Tøyen, we have the world's largest collection of Munch's art, with almost 28 000 works of art in addition to personal effects, tools and even Edvard Munchs private library.
Our collection of 28 000 artworks consist of 1 150 paintings, 17 800 prints, 7 700 drawings (including his 200 sketch-books), 21 sculptures and a number of photographs taken by Munch himself.
The next exhibition at the Munch Museum is the once-in-a-lifetime anniversary exhibition Munch 150. This exhibition will run on two venues, the National Gallery and the Munch Museum respectively.
