The University of Oslo's ceremonial hall offers music and art in beautiful surroundings.
Open Aula autumn 2022
On selected Saturdays this autumn we open the doors to the University Aula, where you can experience Edvard Munch's world-famous Aula decorations in beautiful surroundings.
Edvard Munch completed his Aula paintings in 1916, and they have decorated the walls of the Aula ever since. The eleven magnificent works represent the university's faculties with motifs taken from the lives of ordinary people and Norwegian nature. "The Sun", "Alma Mater" and "History" are the most famous.
In Munch's own time the paintings were controversial, today they are considered a national treasure that many people come by to enjoy.
