The collection consists of around 28.000 works of art: paintings, prints, drawings, sketchbooks, photographs and sculptures. This gives the Munch Museum a unique position in both a Nordic and international context, and the museum collaborates with leading art institutions all over the world. In addition to works by Munch, the museum also houses the collection of Rolf E. Stenersen. The new museum will present the collection, as well has having an ambitious and wide-ranging program of temporary exhibitions, including modernism and contemporary art.
