|About these ratings|
The Munch Museum is dedicated to the art of Norway's most famous painter, Edvard Munch. One of several versions of his masterpiece, The Scream, is housed here. However, don't sleep on the rest of his impressive body of work. The museum has more than 1,100 Munch paintings, including versions of brilliant pieces like Anxiety and Madonna.
If The Scream is the only Munch painting you're really interested in, you can also find a version in the National Gallery building at the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design.
