friday 22 OCtober
The big kick-off takes place on Friday at 17:00, with an official opening with The Royal Couple outside, followed by a spectacular new work by composer Koka Nikoladze, triggering a ripple effect that spreads into the city and across the fjord as bells and ships’ horns join in welcoming the new museum.
Until 23:00, we fill two outdoor stages and the area around MUNCH with music, performances and surprises, and the whole of Bjørvika is involved in celebrating the opening.
