This museum had so much more than would appear from the outside! Unfortunately for us only about 1/4 of the written signage was translated. Still incredibly interesting and moving looking at the memorabilia. We spent two hours but could have been there longer if it wasn't closing for the evening.

Several good well intact buildings. Easy access. interesting perspective. The history and information at this location is clear and reasonably understandable. Go there you will like the place. The guard still stands in place.

I was supposed to visit Akershus Fortress next door, but it was closed, so after walking through the snow covered grounds, I decided to visit the Resistance Museum. I am so glad that i did! It was extremely well laid out and far from being just another museum with artefacts (of which there are still many wonderful ones on display),... More

While we would have liked more information in English, we really enjoyed this museum and easily spent well over ninety minutes going through the Gallery

Most suitable for adult travellers with an interest in history, mainly of World War II and popular resistance in occupied countries. The fortress Akershus festning close by is well worth a visit, too, and offers a Nice, partly seaside, view of the central part of the city, with ships, the Town Hall and the new city hotspots Aker Brygge and...

An interesting hour or so needed to fully appreciate this museum. Was surprised, but pleased that Norway appreciated Britain in the war.

It was a very rewarding and learning experience for me to visit this museum. In a very simple, attractive but logical sequence of events with plenty of artefacts, it depicts the how the Norwegians suffered and had to deal with Nazi Germany occupation during WW2. A must for young or less young history buffs. Very inspiring display. Highly recommended.

Norways experience of being occupied during WW2 is explained in considerable detail in this museum; clearly a traumatic time for the Nation. The interpretation is in English so is very user friendly. Lots of pictures and good themes.
