Gamle Oslo district has converted the old Munch Museum, in Tøyen, into a coronavirus vaccine center.

More than 1,000 people per day can now be vaccinated

After closing down in October as Munch’s works were transferred to a new museum in Bjørvika, the Old Munch Museum has been given a new lease of life as a coronavirus vaccine center. Gamle Oslo district has moved its vaccine headquarters from Ensjø to the more spacious museum meaning an increased capacity for vaccinations.

The entrance, the gift shop, and the cafe were turned into a vaccine center as some of Edvard Munch’s works are still being transported to Bjørvika.

Vaccine center manager Catherine Pettersen Chari told the newspaper Aftenposten that the large size of the museum has now more than doubled the capacity for daily vaccinations in the district from 400 to 1000.
