Upon his death in 1944, Norwegian painter Edvard Munch bequeathed his works to the city of Oslo. The especially built museum opened in 1963 and it's about to move to Bjørvika, next to the new Opera house. Munchmuseet is home to about half of his paintings, as well as an extensive collection of drawings and prints. Free guided tours are given in english every day at 1 pm in July and August. There's a well-stocked gift shop and the Café Munch on the premises.
