This was a fascinating piece of history. The exhibits are very good, and entry was included in our Oslo Pass.

Sadly this exhibition is in need of a revamp. It was opened in 1970 and little has changed since then. This is a pity as the content is interesting and unique. They have part of a bomb dropped on the Tirpitz. There are several recreated scenes where miniature soldiers and cotton wool have been used. It needs to be expanded... More

A very thorough look at the WW2 Nazi occupation of Norway. A bit overwhelming with way too many documents and artifacts to take in on one visit. However, definitely worth a visit. The Norwegians are a brave people.

This is a gem of a museum, beautifully designed to give visitors an authentic feel and understanding for what and how Norwegians endured during WW2. It is tucked away and near the highest setting in the extensive Fortress area of Oslo. Be sure to ask for clear directions if visiting for the first time and wear good walking shoes!

Concise, easy to follow and things for everyone to enjoy of all ages. Be aware that it looks closed even when it isn't - go right up to the door upstairs to check!

The exhibits which were planned to take you on a journey though occupied Norway during WW2, did so with an accurate frankness which was realistically disturbing at times. Good use was made of models, sculpture, objects from the time, story lines and audio visual. Down side was that there were no guides available in English. The shop however had a... More

It is a very interesting story, but they should do a bit of maintenance to the place. Consider you will need one hour to go through it. And the location is nice, so definitively is worth the detour

We only had one afternoon in Oslo so even though my spouse is a WW2 enthusiast, this was lower down on our list of must dos. We made it to the museum about 45 minutes before closing time so we were limited in how much time we could spend there. Some exhibits were labeled in English, some not. Lots of... More
