The Munch Museum released 15,000 tickets for its grand opening weekend. All were gone in a few hours.

“The 15,000 people were visitors seeing the exhibitions, but there were far more visitors in the reception area, café, and restaurant,” press officer Maren Lindeberg told NRK.

People will have to settle for pre-ordering tickets in the future as well. The new museum introduced time intervals and a limit on the number of people in the exhibition halls at once.

This system was implemented to help infection control, visitor flow, and safety, and to ensure that all guests have an optimal experience while enjoying the work of one of Modernism’s most significant artists.

“People have to choose the time for their visit, but once they have entered the museum, they can stay for as long as they want,” Lindeberg said. She added that just over 14,800 tickets had been pre-ordered so far for the exhibitions and events throughout the year.
