Tasters from 2022
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.
Edvard Munch is Norway’s most important contribution to art worldwide
MUNCH will strengthen our status as one of the world’s leading cultural tourism destinations and inspire everyone to get closer to Munch’s art.
- Stein Olav Henrichsen
Director of MUNCH
The new MUNCH will be a cultural powerhouse for the city, the country and the world

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.
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.
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS AND SUPPORTERS

These valuable partnerships will contribute to strengthening our exhibition and events programmes.
