I am a WW2 war buff and this place is perfect as its full of authentic war artifacts and history that happened in Norway. This was my third time and like a good movie, it just gets better each time as there is plenty to take in.

This place is an authentic war museum which allows photography as well. They charge a 20$ entry fee but its worth it. This place is well maintained and has a lot of brilliant artifacts. I visited it in august 2014 and had a fabulous experience.

I was looking forward to seeing the museum but as I was in Narvik on Saturday and Sunday I missed out because it was closed. Seems a bit silly as I would have thought that's when a lot of people would visit.

Authentic and realistic museum mainly presenting the second world war in Northern Norway, in one years time from now the museum will move to a new, modern and bigger location in the centre of Narvik city.

I wandered in as the outside looked interesting, and what a find. As an American, we hear so little about "The War" before we entered the fray on the day "that shall live in infamy." This little museum opened up my eyes to a series of events that impacted the early direction of the war, and continues to leave its... More

For the small place that it was, the exhibition in the museum was so, so rich with content it was hard to take all in one go. The museum could update the presentation, but altogether the message gets through. It was very educational, even for my young son. He was, in the beginning, excited about the tanks and other contraptions.... More

We were invited to sit initially and watch a movie on the history of Narvic's place during the war. The guide then gave us some verbal history and took questions before we moved on to roam and follow and view various exhibitions through-out...Very educational and gives a good history of events around this area......Particularly around the need for the control...

Narvik is a rather grim and industrial looking town and the only noteworthy attraction is the moving War Museum. It is a very educational museum, describing the battle of Narvik of 10th April 1940 in graphic detail. This is a part of World War 2 we rarely hear about. The Germans wanting to get their hands on the Iron Ore... More
