Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo

This spectacular wooden structure, designed by the world-known Italian architect Renzo Piano, has become a new landmark on the waterfront of Oslo, Norway, beautifully located by the Oslofjord at the end of the Aker Brygge – Tjuvholmen pedestrian area. This privately owned museum of contemporary art opened in 2012, and became soon one of the most visited buildings in Oslo.

Astrup Fearnely Museum in Oslo

The museum consists of two separate buildings, linked together with bridges connecting the roofs, with a beautiful canal in between. There is a tiny beach as well, and a tiny sculpture park. The larger building hosts the permanent exhibition, while the smaller hosts the temporary exhibitions. The museum gives 6-7 temporary exhibitions each year, producing exhibitions that travel worldwide.

What our customers say:

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.

  • On behalf of the group I would like to thank you and your colleagues for organizing our wonderful tour of Norway. Everything went very well including the weather, which was spectacular. We enjoyed all the hotels, the central locations you chose and the amenities, especially the lavish breakfasts. Three extra days in Oslo allowed us to tour the city at our leisure and to enjoy more of the important sights including the newly opened National Museum. The Norway in a Nutshell tour was amazing and made much easier by using your recommended porterage service between hotels in Oslo and Bergen. Both the train journeys and the boat trip were spectacular, and combined with a night in the beautiful Kviknes Hotel made for an unforgettable two days. We were very impressed by the Hurtigruten cruise, particularly the way they combined a working ship with a cruise ship, the comfortable accommodations, the food and service. It was fascinating to visit all the various ports, islands and fjords and the two included tours were excellent and informative. In the end we were glad to have the extra night in Kirkenes, to visit their lovely museum and take a trip to the Russian border. It was a good way to end the tour. Again, thank for staying with us through 2 years of pandemic postponements and changes. We certainly will recommend Fjord Travel in the future.
