– a vibrant art museum built for great experiences

Sun–Tue:  10–18
Wed–Sat: 10–21

Experience more of Edvard Munch than ever before, in close interaction with contemporary art and renown artists from history

MUNCH membership is your entry to a rich world of art. As a member you get to bring a guest to explore the new museum first, in an exclusive pre-opening 19 October.

FOod, drink, shop

On the ground floor you will find our café, where you can enjoy great coffee and freshly baked croissants inside, or shellfish and fresh sourdough bread on the terrace. On the 12th floor you will find our bistro that leans on continental traditions with a smile, with seasonal ingredients on the menu. The view from our roof terrace next to the bar on the 13th floor can be enjoyed with something refreshing in your glass.

More about food & drink

Focusing on high-quality European designs and sustainability, the MUNCH shop will be a destination in its own. We collaborate with well-known designers inspired by Munch’s art and have a wide selection of creative and inspiring products for children. Our bookshelves will be crammed with books about Edvard Munch, as well as high-quality books on art, design and architecture.

An innovative, playful and adventurous building providing completely new opportunities for unforgettable experiences

Experimental programming has been part of MUNCH's history since the opening of the museum on Tøyen in 1963. In Bjørvika we continue the tradition on a whole new level with MUNCH Live – an ambitious, interdisciplinary programme with concerts, performances, films, conversations and more –  a brand new cultural venue by the fjord of Oslo.
