The new National Museum

The Norwegian government is building a new museum for art, architecture and design in Oslo. The new National Museum will become an important and dynamic arena for the general public to meet the visual arts.

The proposed building signals the museum’s significance on a national and international level.

At Vestbanen, we will have both a large, great art venue and an important meeting place for the public of all ages. I look forward to the opening in 2020 with great anticipation.

– Trine Skei Grande, Norwegian Minister of Culture
