Edward Munch was an expressionistic painter that was born in December 1983 and died in January 1944. His most famous painting is The scream and he’s the pride of Norway. This is the reason as to why we’ve decided to analyze the Munch museum in Oslo. Have they honored his legacy or failed in every way possible? Let’s find out.

Why do we say this?

They haven’t necessarily failed though visitors aren’t that happy with their experience. Customers grade “The Scream” at a low 3,36 / 5, not because of the actual painting, but because of the lack of painting. The picture isn’t always displayed and the museum isn’t keen on notifying visitors when, and when not the painting is on display. Their “security” is also poorly rated at 3,48 / 5 and is perceived as rude and intimidating. Some visitors have also been followed by the guards. The entrance fee is also too high and the gifts in the gift shop are too expensive. The museum isn’t “priceworthy”.

The museum is, unfortunately, not as good as visitors are hoping for. The Scream is sometimes on display and it’s impossible knowing when whilst their security guards are rude and frightening. The museum isn’t worth the hassle, it’s expensive and to some extent clickbait. The Scream is the museum’s main attraction and at times it’s not even there, and as an added bonus, their guards might very well tail you as well. Sound like a fun day!
