Winter is far from over in Oslo in January. While we love the Wintery landscape, it might be good to have a few hiding places up your sleve if you get too cold in Oslo.
Botanical Gardens of Oslo
One might not think the words “botanical gardens” in combination with January, but the fact is that it is pretty darn nice to visit the Botanical Gardens of Oslo in January too. There are plenty of warm greenhouses to hide away in, and have a look at unique and rare species. The entrance? Completely free. Read more about the Botanical Garden in Oslo on their website.
Around the corner from the Botanical Gardens lies the Munch Museum. The museum is, as you might have figured out, a tribute to Edvard Munch, Norway’s most famous artist of modern time. The works of Munch are mixed with different exhibitions, often of Norwegian artists. Opening hours can be found at the Munch Museum’s website.
Astrup Fearnley Museum
Located on Tjuvholmen lies one of the most modern art museums of Oslo, Astrup Fearnley Museum. The museum opened in 1993 but moved to its current location in 2012. The private museum focuses on contemporary art, with temporeray exhibtions from all across the world. The museum also have a constant collection of its own, with arts from famous Norwegian artists. See which exhibitions are on right now on Astrup Fearnley Museum’s website.
