Edvard Munch's House (Edvard Munchs Hus)
+47 8153 0555 (Tourist Information)
Three attractions share the same house. Edvard Munch, the painter, was born at Pilestredet 29 and lived here as a child. The mural of The Scream
, based on Edvard Munch's painting and recreated here in black and white, is very impressive and was made by architecture students when the buildings were threatened by demolition. This is one of Oslo's few murals and should be seen. Close by is the Blitz
building, which offers punk concerts and various political activities, as well as tasty waffles and cheap vegetarian food.
