This museum provides three floors of historical information about the Norwegian Armed Forces, the Resistance, and the nearby fortress.

Well, the great thing about this museum is it's free, a rare thing to find in Norway. Museum is organised across 3 floors. Ground floor focuses on Norway's involvement in the UN operations around the World. First floor is the primary and best exhibition focusing on the resistance movement between 1940-45. Second Floor focuses on the history of the Fortress.
