With so much land to explore and such a varied scenery, it’s safe to say that Norwegian museums and art venues boast an impressive array of exhibitions and paintings for visitors to enjoy. Inspired by their countries’ breathtaking shapes and forms, one can simply wander off to the wilderness and be in the middle of a bustling city, all in one day. Norwegian art offers something for everyone.
For the city dwellers, Oslo and its surroundings are a must. The Norwegian capital is known for its many museums and exhibition venues where cutting-edge contemporary art mesmerises the public week after week.
