OSLO INFORMATION - OSLO INFORMATION GUIDE

Oslo National GalleryGuide to Oslo – The city of Oslo is a cultural city and has an amazing historical background so when considering Oslo information for your holiday you will find it is an excellent destination for travelers who want to take in culture, history, and the arts. Oslo City has many museums, galleries, theatres, parks, and as well as the Royal Palace many stately homes and historic buildings.

One of the more interesting Oslo museums is the Munch Museum and it is full of information on Oslo painter Edvard Munch (1863 – 1944) - a painter and printmaker who has a unique position in the Nordic countries. He is one of the pioneers of expressionism. Together with Van Gogh, Munch is regarded as the main source of German Expressionism. Of course he is the painter of the famous "The Scream" and "The Madonna". "The Scream" is in fact not in the Munch Museum but in the Oslo National Gallery.

The National Gallery also offers a large collection of exquisite works of art with painters such as Edvard Munch, Christian Krogh and J.C. Dahl being on display and adorning the walls of this very interesting gallery. Here, you can see Edvard Munch’s most famous painting - The Scream. More information on Oslo National Gallery can be found on their website - see the link below.

This vessel was constructed in 1892 by Scottish-Norwegian shipbuilder Colin Archer, and was used by Fridtjof Nansen on the first Fram Voyage across the ice surrounding the North Pole.
