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
What you think of the art content is of course very personal. It is worth a visit but the amount of art is somewhat limited. I liked Coon's 'Bubbles' for example.

Changing exhibitions and very nice surroundings, especially during the summer months. Bring your bathing suit for a quick dive into the Oslo fjord.

Interesting building in beautiful location. However, the exhibition is a bit minimalist in terms of how little is too see in a huge space, I had hoped for more. Saying that, the artworks are made for the big spaces and make their impact best that way.
The building is really cool, what's inside less so IMO. I'm not a great aficionado of modern art but there wasn't anything that really wowed me. I guess the most recognisable pieces were Damien Hurst's bisected animals but it wasn't my cup of tea. The layout is minimalist with only 12% of the collection on display at any one time. Maybe I was just unlucky.
