A small room upstairs that used to function as the headquarters theta-group resistance cell during the second World War. They have tried to recreate the room as much as possible. Many of the decorations and props are donated. Only one item is original. Some of the items were too new and were therefore out of place. The guide telling the story shared a lot of details on how the group started, what they did, what their influence was on events in history, and how they disbanded and ended. I learned a lot today!
Admission in a group of 10-12 people. Motivated person telling you about the historic background of the theta group. Bonus: you can be in a typical building in Bryggen. Little drawback: not open too often, though that is compensated by the authentic presentation of the history.
