Things to do in Oslo

  • Munch Museum Munch Museum Oslo, Norway
    The Munch Museum, located in Oslo, Norway, opened in 1963 with a purpose built museum to house the magnificent collection of Edvard Munch. Edvard passed on in 1944, and left his complete works to the city of Oslo; and was the most prominent Norwegian to donate his collection to the nation and was the only Norwegian artist to have influenced other artistic trends throughout the continent. He was a pioneer in expressionist art and began the movement that continued to grow in Germany and the rest of the Nordic countries. His collection included; 4500 drawings, 18,000 prints and 1100 paintings; with his major works always being displayed. The museum also sponsors film screenings, lectures, audioguides, guided tours and concerts, with a wonderful gift shop on the premises that has many catalogs, and souvenirs; there is also a cafe that serves, sandwiches, pastries and salads. The museum's library contains many books about Munch and other artists from the continent.   The museum was funded by the profits of the city's cinemas and opened its doors on the painter's 100th birthday anniversary, and besides the magnificent works donated by Edvard himself, his sister, Inger Munch also donated works that had been given to her; as well as gaining other works with duplicates to trade. Currently, the museum houses more than half of the artist's overall works and at least one copy of all the prints that he created. The image to the right is the future appearance of the Munch Museum once it is completed in 2013. In 2004, two paintings, the Scream and Madonna, were stolen from the museum by two armed men, forcing the guards to lay on the floor while they cut the cables that held the paintings to the wall and escaped in an Audi A6, which was later recovered by the police. The paintings would not be recovered until 2006.

  • Vigeland Park
    The Vigeland Sculpture Park is part of the Frogner Park in Oslo, Norway and spreads across 80 acres of landscaped gardens and highlights 212 bronze and granite sculptures made by Gustav Vigeland and is interspersed throughout the park. Gustav personally sculpted every piece from clay and individual craftsmen were contracted to fabricate the marvelous sculptures into what they are now. The works of art sit along a long axis that is separated into six sections; the Fountain, the Bridge, the Children's Playground, the Main Gate, the Wheel of Life and the Monolith Plateau. The Monolith is a platform of stairs that contains the monolith totem with 36 figure groups standing on the elevation that bring with them the "circle of life" message. Access to this monstrous piece is made by 8 figural gates made of wrought iron and designed between 1933 and 1937; and installed sometime after Vigeland passed on in 1943. The Bridge is 58 of the park's sculptures standing along the bridge, which is 328 feet long and 49 feet wide, connecting the Main Gate and the Fountain. All the sculptures are covered in bronze and contribute to the "Human condition" theme of the entire park. The Main Gate is made of granite and wrought iron, serving as the entrance to the park and is made of five big gates, two copper roofed gate houses, adorned with weather vanes and two small pedestrian gates. The Children's Playground is at the end of the bridge, with 8 bronze statues, all created in the images of children at play, and at the center of the piece, mounted on a granite column is the representation of a fetus. There is a small pond located here where ducks and geese swim. The Wheel of Life is located at the end of the axis, and contains a sundial, made in 1930, and then the Wheel of Life, made in 1933-34. It resembles a wreath with four people and a baby floating in harmony and is considered a symbol of eternity and contains the overall theme of the park; man's journey from the cradle to the grave.

  • Norway's Resistance Museum Norway's Resistance Museum Oslo, Norway
    The Norway resistance to the occupation of Norway by Nazi Germany started after Operation Weserubung in 1940 and continued until 1945; taking numerous forms. The first was civil disobedience and unarmed resistance, the other was armed resistance that came in the forms of commando raids, sabotage, assassinations and other special operations during that period. Norway continued to assert the legitimacy of the Norwegian government that was in exile and by implicating the lack of legitimacy by Vidkun Quisling's pro-Nazi regime and Josef Terboven's military administration. The first defense of southern Norway, was very disorganized, but did allow the government to escape the Nazis; and the more organized military defense and counter-attacks in sections of western Norway and in northern Norway were aimed at recapturing strategic positions and the evacuation of the government. The Norwegian government was totally surprised by the invasion of Norway by the Nazis, and had been able to move some of their gold reserves out of Oslo, but overall it was just too quickly done to be able to mount any viable resistance. However, even then, when the Nazi regime demanded that Norway accept their "protection of the Reich", the idea was rejected by the foreign minister Halvdan Koht occurred on the day the actual invasion had begun, and the complete Norwegian parliament, royal family and cabinet was evacuated by train and then car, with an extraordinary session of parliament occurring at Elverum, which gave the king and the cabinet the necessary authority to run the country until such time as the parliament could again convene. The Nazis tried desperately to capture or kill King Haakon and the Norwegian government, but they did travel through the interior of the country and slipped away on a British ship headed for London. Because of the longstanding policy of disarmament after WWI, the country's military was quite underfunded and undertrained and weren't ready for the invasion in the south. The German army met with little resistance, except for the sinking of the German heavy cruiser, Blucher by the Oscarsborg Fortress that delayed the capture of Oslo and allowed the escaping government to succeed. The rest of the story and the heroic actions of the Norwegian people can be learned at this wonderful museum, where you will get all the facts to an incredible story.

  • Kon-Tiki Museum
    Kon-Tiki was the raft that was used by Norwegian writer, conservationist and explorer, Thor Heyerdahl during his 1947 expedition to the Polynesian Islands from South America. Named after the Inca sun god, Viracocha, which had been Kon-Tiki in ancient times, it is the title of the book that Heyerdahl wrote about the experience. Heyerdahl believed that South Americans may have settled in the Polynesia region in pre-Columbian ages, using his expedition to show that with only those materials and technologies available at the time, that they could have reached the islands. Heyerdahl did carry some modern equipment, like the radio, sextant, charts, metal knives and watches, but the raft itself, the Kon-Tiki was the main purpose for showing and attempting the trip. The expedition was funded by various private means, as well as equipment donated by the US Army; with a small group led by Heyerdahl, headed to Peru, to construct the raft from balsa logs and other native materials that would be a replica of the illustrations made by Spanish conquistadores. The trip started on April 28, 1947, and then sailed for 101 days for more than 4300 miles across the Pacific before being forced into a reef at Raroia in the Tuamotu Islands August 7, 1947; with everyone making a safe landing. His book about the experience would become a bestseller and published in 1950 as the Kon-Tiki Expedition: By Raft Across the South Seas; then later reprinted as Kon-Tiki: Across the Pacific in a Raft. In 1951, a documentary motion pictures was produced about the adventure, but called, Kon-Tiki, and produced from the crew's filmstrip notes and write-up; which did win an Academy Award that year. The film was directed by Heyerdahl and edited by Olle Nordemar; and then made into a television series called The Kon-Tiki Man: The Life and Adventures of Thor Heyerdahl, directed by Bengt Jonson. The original raft, Kon-Tiki is exhibited at the museum in Oslo.  The museum is full of various artifacts from this expedition and others, with information about building the rafts, and surviving the long trip. There are many experimental exhibits about Heyerdahl's adventures and subsequent trips that will enlighten many people about his discoveries, one of which was the oil balls that have been floating in the ocean for more than half a century; and has become a serious problem today for the hard working people along the gulf coasts of the United States.

  • National GalleryNational Gallery Oslo, Norway
    The Norwegian Parliament passed a resolution to create a national art museum in Oslo, Norway, wanting to showcase the country's art and see the comparison between it and the artworks of the older, European tradition. That museum was the start of the National Gallery, that as time passed began to acquire a marvelous collection by purchase and donation; and as it grew, continued to acquire the nation's biggest collection of Norwegian and international art. Currently, as it merges with the National Museum, this magnificent collection contains 25,000 prints, 900 sculptures, 4500 paintings and 950 plaster casts. For a long time, the National Gallery had no permanent home, and was called the State Art Museum, but did manage to get one in 1880, as it moved into the middle part of the current building; that was enlarged with a southern wing in the years from 1904 to 1907, and then a northern wing during 1918 to 1924; needing to make space for the growing collections, a library and lecture hall. All through its wonderful history, the National Gallery has become an important aspect of building a nation and the Norwegian art history. Originally, the gallery had been constructed to house the excellent works of the nation, but over the years, thanks to many generous benefactors, it has been able to also acquire an international collection that is very impressive; especially those works by French impressionists. The biggest attraction has become the Scream and Madonna and other works by the famous artist, Edvard Munch. Presently, the museum has a fantastic permanent collection and many awesome changing displays, that include, contemporary art and historical art. The research room has many great works that aren't displayed in the general exhibits, with the staff helping in any way possible. Their gift shop has many excellent books and gifts that pertain to art and the galleries' displays as well. The cafe, called the Salon de The is a great place to enjoy tasty Norwegian cuisine and a good place to read or enjoy artworks with coffee or tea.  Exhibitions coming to the gallery include; Goddesses, Works from the Collection: 1814-1950, Marte Aas: Film and Photography, The Fashion Galleries, Highlights: The Sejersted Bodtker Collection, The Palace and Linstow, and Take a Seat! Norwegian Furniture Design. In the permanent displays, there are two main collections with sub-categories in those; the first, Style 1100-1905 depicts how various art styles have influenced the items that society has surrounded itself with, from the Middle Ages to the art noveau in Norway specifically and other countries as well. Included in this marvelous exhibition are four treasured areas of importance; Norwegian silver, glass, tapestries and faience, with East Asian decorative artworks. The other display includes Design and Craft 1905-2005 which concentrates on modernism and its development. The gallery contains four major areas of artworks that are showcased throughout the museum; the art collections that contain paintings, photography, videos and installation, printmaking, and sculpture from the Middle Ages to the present; continuing to focus mainly on Norwegian art; collections of decorative arts and designs that contain, silver, ceramics, textiles, glass and furniture from the Middle Ages to the present; architectural collections that contain models, drawings and photography from the 20th century that focuses on the Norwegian architecture; and the research collections. 

  • Ibsen Museum
    The Ibsen Museum is showcased in the playwright's last home and sits by the Royal Palace in Oslo, Norway. On the 100th anniversary of Ibsen's death, in 1906, the museum reopened the writer's house, complete with the original furnishings, interior and decor to the enjoyment of the citizens of the city and nation. Henrik Ibsen's plays have been performed on stages around the world; however, the best place to really learn about the writer that lived behind the public facade is at Arbins gate. Here, Henrik, lived the last 11 years of his life and wrote his last best dramatic works, John Gabriel Borkman in 1896 and When We Dead Awaken in 1899. A lot of work was done to recreate the writer's home, but thanks to financial help, as well as goodwill by donors and lenders, the expertise of museum staff and skilled craftsmen, a very authentic replication of Henrik's home has been completed. The floors, walls and surfaces have been rebuilt according to archaeological structure studies and other historical resources, with the original furniture installed and the appearance of time has caused such extensive damage on the curtains, tablecloths and drapes that these have been rewoven according to specs from that period. Suzannah Ibsen passed on 1914, and the house was later destroyed with the furnishings scattered; while the city was able to acquire his study and bedroom and stored it all in the Norwegian Folk Museum. The library was shipped to the county museum in Skien and is now the Telemark Museum; with dining room going to the Ibsen House Museum that is now called the City of Grimstad's museums. The rest of the furniture that was left was taken by the family's heirs. Actor Knut Wigert decided to rent the apartment in 1990, in hopes of making it available to the public with more renovations completed.
