Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo

4.1
#10 of 66 in Museums in Oslo
Discover one of the most significant private collections of post-war and contemporary art in Northern Europe at Astrup Fearnley Museet. The permanent collection, once dominated by paintings and sculptures by American and European artists, now features art from India, Japan, China, and Brazil as well. The museum's three pavilions sit against the waterfront backdrop in a neighborhood that used to house docks and shipyards. Notice how the maritime theme is reflected in a sail-shaped glass roof and mast-like steel columns. The museum also features strange works, like a cow split in half and submerged in formaldehyde by controversial British artist Damian Hurst.

  • Fascinating museum! I really enjoyed my time here. The layout works well and there is plenty of space to enjoy the art. There are two buildings included with the ticket price, which is a reasonable 130 NOK. The first building has installations from lessor known artists. The second building has, at the moment, art from some incredibly well known artists and is well worth a visit on its own. Also, the building itself is a work of art set in an amazing location!
  • Great exhibition. And beautiful building. There are a lot of other places to enjoy in Oslo so only consider this if it's a rainy day. The area surrounding the gallery is definitely worth visiting
