Mellomstasjonen – en route to the new National Museum

Welcome to Mellomstasjonen, where you can find out about the plans for the new National Museum.

In 2020, the new National Museum will arrive at Vestbanen, the former site of the western Oslo railway station. In the meanwhile, you can visit the Mellomstasjonen information centre and get to know what is set to become the largest art museum in the Nordic countries! At the centre you can study the construction project, join guided tours and breakfast meetings, and participate in artist talks with contemporary Norwegian artists.

The name Mellomstasjonen – Norwegian for “a station along the way” – indicates that the centre is a step on the way to the new National Museum.

See the calendar below for more information about events.
