Around 164,000 people have visited the new National Museum in Oslo since it opened on June 11. The number of visitors has been higher than the museum expected.
“It was very gratifying to see the faces of the people walking around. It’s incredibly nice to see those reactions. Cheerful and happy people who marvel at and admire what they see. So it’s nice to spy a little on the visitors,” department director Rolf Yngve Uggen at the National Museum told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).
The National Museum at Vestbanen in Oslo cost NOK 6.15 billion to build and has one of Norway’s most expensive entrance tickets of NOK 180 for an adult.
It houses Norway’s most extensive art, architecture, and design collections. Around 6,500 works are presented in the exhibitions, which span 86 rooms and two floors.
