Situated at the Tjuvholmen waterside area of the city centre, the gallery's modern design is as impressive as the collection it houses, especially seen from the water. Indeed one of the delights of the building is the generous views it provides of the fjord as you make your way around. A private collection means you’ll always like some exhibits more than others but, with the likes of Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons on display, at least you’ll know the kind of thing to expect. There’s a small sculpture park outside too, facing the water, which includes pieces by Antony Gormley. On sunny days this area doubles as a place for locals to catch some rays.
