  • Norway was occupied for five years, and this museum tells the story of resistance along its western coast, including much coordination with London. The stories of courage and sacrifice were sobering. ...  more »
  • Visited this small but very interesting museum on a very rainy day. We received a lovely welcome with information at the door. Lots of information with guide books in English to describe the displays ...  more »

  • This museum provides three floors of historical information about the Norwegian Armed Forces, the Resistance, and the nearby fortress. Each of these floors offer guides in several languages that make it possible to understand the photos and artifacts on display. If I could make one critique, it would be that the arrangement of items in the Resistance section could be better organized.
  • 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.
