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.

Impressive architecture by Renzo Piano, the Italian star architect. The exposition and collection could charm me much less, but modern art is a personal thing.

In my opinion a very expensive entry fee for not so much exhibit and art. The exhibits are not really very varied and some a little too modern for my liking with pictures and strange art etc.More

It was interesting to see a couple of works by artists we’ve studied (Hirst and Keifer) but the main exhibit (Cindy Sherman) was only mildly interesting. A very small museum with no discounts for seniors or students.More

The permanent exhibition is great and very inspiring. Recommended. The other part was temporary, and when we visited, not very inspiring. To me at least.

The gallery building itself - in two parts on the quayside overlooking Oslo fjord - is stunning. The permanent collection is mainly post-war American art, with some pieces by British artists like Damien Hirst and Gilbert & George. There is also an imposing lead library...More
