The themes vary from period to period, so it makes sense to check their websites to see whether there are any specail exhibitions if you plan to visit. I would recommend the Norwegian historical paintings, but there are many worthwhile items to look at. Recommended!

Reasonable price for Norway, I guess. We visited only building no. 3 for the Edvard Munch collection but were disappointed as none of the well known pieces were there. Remaining art average at best.

Really informative and rich in interesting collections of Norwegian visual arts, including some wonderful works of their very own national painter Edvard Munch... Kode is made up of a complex of buildings (four, if I remember correctly), so you need to take your time to visit all galleries and give all exhibits a proper look - I'd say reserve minimum... More

Came here to kill some time whilst visiting Bergen. They had the Edvard Munch collection here at the time. Free to enter with some great examples of his work.

The entire museum was wonderful, but the Edvard Munch collection was illuminating. It is the 2nd largest collection of his works, from early in his career to late in life.

some nice collections of norwegian painters, and quite centrally located too, however, if you want to see the best Norwegian art, you really have to travel to Oslo where most of it is housed, as you would expect. Some respite from the rain, however.

There are four buildings in total, included in the one ticket. You could spend a whole day going through these exhibitions. LOTS of art. A long slog if you're not really into art, but otehrwise really great.

My expectations were not the highest, as this was a small museum in the second city in a small country. Shame on me! All museums are a mixed bag, but this one has one world class gems in its collection. The three highlights were, 1. Munch - there were a good number of these and they were arranged in a... More

I went there to see Edvard Munch, an author of the famous "The Scream" painting. Surprisingly there was a few more very intersting paintings of him, and a lot more totally new to me. The biggest surprise was to discover some other Norwegian painters with the most impressive Nikolai Astrup. The big advantage is that all the expositions can be... More

We just happened to drop by and loved the emphasis on Norwegian painting in Building 3. We really wanted to see some Munch on our visit to Norway and Kode has a beautiful selection of his works.
