Overview
More
Astrup Fearnley Museet is a private museum and has since its opening in 1993 been one of the most important art institutions in Oslo. The museum moved to Tjuvholmen in 2012, beautifully located by the Oslo Fjord in a building designed by world-renowned architect Renzo Piano. The museum adventure starts as soon as you catch sight of the magnificent building and location, that unites art, nature and urbanity. The museum houses the Astrup Fearnley Collection, one of Norway's most important and most extensive private collections of contemporary art, with iconic works by artists such as Damien Hirst, Anselm Kiefer and Jeff Koons.

One of the best exhibitions of modern art I have seen ! The building is amazing with views to the outside from every level. Another architect masterpiece. Worth a visit no matter what exhibits are displayed.

Really cool area with lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The actual museum has a medium sized collection of famous contemporary artists, but the main attraction is the beautiful view over the Oslo Fjord and Renzo Pianos architecture in itself. Nice little cafe on the...More

A rich collection of paintings and photographs. I really liked the American photos and the showcase of Japanese culture on the second floor! And good service from the staff!

This stunning two-building structure by starchitect Renzo Piano is pretty perfect for displaying art. It’s easy to focus on the pieces displayed because of the grand dimensions and the location on Tjuvholmen waterfront is just perfect. Personally, I like challenging art that isn’t pretty or...More

I usually do not enjoy contemporary art that much, but this museum is simply the best of its kind (so far) and absolutely worth a visit. The museum is beautifully designed and exhibits great exhibitions.

On view now are some wonderful provocative pieces by Damien Hurst, and they made our visit worthwhile. An intriguing "ice glass" sculpture by Roni Horn on the 2nd floor of the seaside building was also delightful. And it's always special to see another Renzo Piano...More
