I went to Oslo a couple of weeks ago, visited some museums and came back to share my favorites. While some people prefer strolling in the city to get to know the vibe, I enjoy a good museum or three.
The Folk Museum
If you can only visit one museum in Oslo that should be the Folk museum. Beautiful old buildings, nature and animals, you can see it all in one. The best part was the exhibition of old decor items. It has old DIY stencils, paints and everything in between. People painted their houses before Benjamin Moore and that’s the way they did it. The second best part were the pigs. Instant crush.
The National Gallery
They have Munch. They have The Scream. If you admire a famous work of art, then the National Gallery at Oslo is the place for you. It’s a small gallery that you can tour in an hour or less and it covers many periods from the ancient times to modern art.
Museum of Architecture
For all architecture lovers like me, it’s a nice place to visit. The architectural details of the building itself were more interesting that the exhibits and the coffee place absolutely perfect for an afternoon drink. Also, I wish I could bring this large print home.
There you have it! Is there something you always do when you visit a new city? I visit as many museums as I can and try the local sweets until I can’t take any more sugar. It’s a must!
