A reminder of a bleak but brave time in recent Norwegian history. It made for an interesting visit but also made one thoughtful on a beautiful carefree summer day. The displays in English were very helpful. Well worth a visit.

This museum was brilliant. Free entry on our Oslo card. So many museums in Oslo but this one was unique. Fascinating to read and see how the resistance movement operated during the war. Some clever inventions, and ingenious solutions to problems at the time. Such brave people. Look out for the sten guns, and the prisoner diary written on toilet... More

We really enjoyed learning about the Norwegian resistance movement during WWII. The museum's exhibit was quite well done, edulcational and had signage in English. We spent a little over an hour there reading most of the info to learn more about the brave men and women that stood up to the Nazis. My husband particulary liked it. Note - it... More

Well worth a stop when visiting Oslo, a glimpse into a part of Norwegian history that we hope never to have to repeat

If you are interested in WWII history this museum is a must. The museum was well laid out and the use of models and props were excellent. I was left feeling like I gained insightful information about Norway during Nazi occupation. For 25 NOK for students it was very good value for money.

Given that it's on the very location where many Norwegian patriots were murdered by the Nazis without a trial, it's hard not be moved by this museum, which has very good signage for English speakers. German atrocities in Norway are well documented, as is the treason of Quisling (who lent his name to the word, which I didn't know). But... More

Norway tried to remain neutral during WWII but that proved impossible! Do a little reading about their involvement before you go and get into a guide lead tour to learn more. What a resilient people!

What a wonderful museum! We were so impressed by the bravery of the Norwegian people, from the king who barely escaped the Nazis to the actors, teachers , and clergy, who were ordered.to "Nazify" their theaters, schools, and sermons. The actors and teachers said NO and the clergy quit! It was a good history lessons and I will love the... More
