Discover one of the most significant private collections of post-war and contemporary art in Northern Europe at Astrup Fearnley Museet. The permanent collection, once dominated by paintings and sculptures by American and European artists, now features art from India, Japan, China, and Brazil as well. The museum's three pavilions sit against the waterfront backdrop in a neighborhood that used to house docks and shipyards. Notice how the maritime theme is reflected in a sail-shaped glass roof and mast-like steel columns. The museum also features strange works, like a cow split in half and submerged in formaldehyde by controversial British artist Damian Hurst.

Astrup Fearnley Museet reviews
Contains both a permanent exhibition and visiting artists. This time it was Nicole Eisenman containing sculpures in mind bugling forms and paintings with details ro explore. more »
Structurally breathtaking building on Oslo waterfront. Modern Art Museum over a few floors. Highlights were Damien Hirst exhibits, David Hockney paintings and the iconic Jeff Koons Michael Jackson..... more »
This place is definitely worth your time and money. Can't say I enjoyed every piece of art, but it's something so different it provoked so many different emotions in me, I left very impressed. From things you can't wrap your mind around thinking 'how on earth somebody just woke up with a though of cutting some carpet and then called it art' to some magnificent pieces. Only downside was only exhibition available was the permanent one, but nothing that could have been done about that.
A beautifully placed modern art museum with two buildings with each exhibitions (one with featured exhibition and another with permanent installation). It's a nice walking distance along the pier of the fjord in Oslo from the Nobel Centre. Free cloakroom facilities and various interesting merchandise to purchase. Very worth visiting.
