This museum tells a story worth telling and will be of interest to anyone looking to learn about WW2 in Norway. Kids who are interested in history will love this museum, just as I loved it when I was a kid. However, the permanent exhibition is exactly the same as it was 25 years ago -- absolutely nothing has been... More

If you are a WWII history buff, you'll want to see this, but the displays were already worn out years ago and haven't been replaced.

If you are a World War II history buff, this is for you. Norway gets overlooked as one of the countries that was invaded during the war, France, Poland, and Britain get the most attention. I recommend visiting this museum as it tells the story of the Norwegians that were screwed over by Quisling and stood up to Hitler.

The resistance museum seeks to present what Norway was like during the five years of German occupation during world war 2. Entrance fees is Kor50 or about usd 5 per adult. It is located right at the top of Akersuhus Fortress.  When walks in to this nondescript building (easily missed). One enters this red interior for a TV program about... More

A great deal of walking to get to this Museum. Might be too hard for fragile elderly or young children, but great experience if you can handle the walking. I am glad we found this museum on the way to the castle. Must allow a minimum of one hour.

Steeped in history, lot of artefacts on display and really covered off Norway's role in ww2. Husband had an amazing time, son and I were done in 20 mins but hung out in very comfy seats at the entrance waiting for hubby who spent about an hour or so doing the self guided walk through. If you're a military or... More

A well presented, thought provoking exhibit. Gives a true insight into the occupation. Looks at all aspects of life during the war.
