About the Museum
Please note, the museum will open in Spring 2021.
The new National Museum will become the largest art museum in the Nordic region and a venue for entirely new encounters with art. The museum is currently being built at the site of the former Vestbanen railway station in central Oslo and is set to open in 2020. The permanent exhibition will aim to show how art and culture are a central part of history, society, and the life we live here and now. In the exhibition you will encounter works from antiquity to the present day, with a primary focus on the development of Norwegian visual arts, decorative arts, design, and architecture. The exhibition will bring to life the history from the various periods when the collection gradually came into being, including the art, architecture, and design that is being created today.
