Housed in four venues, Norway's national art museum covers architecture, contemporary art, and decorative art but its most visited building is the National Gallery, an austere barnlike gallery built in 1837. People flock here for Edvard Munch's The Scream as well as his standout Madonna. There are a few paintings by the French Impressionists, Picasso, and Matisse, but in comparison with other great art galleries in Europe, the pickings are relatively poor. A new venue is slated to open at Vestbanen in 2017, which will unite all four disparate elements of the museum into one splendid new home.
