I'm a Brit and I didn't really know the part Britain played in the liberation of Norway. I came away from the museum humbled and proud of my country's efforts and the resistance in Norway.

When a small country is attacked by a huge nazi-aggressor - what can you do? A lot, and that is what this museum is all about. The stories of some of the thousands of brave individuals that refused to live like sheeps and decided to fight against the occupants. Especially interesting to see the exebitions on Milorg, a military covert... More

Small but packed with history. Was worth the visit. Being from Australia I like reading the experiences of other nationalities.

Well worth a visit if you are within the fort area. The building is quite deceptive form the outside as it looks very small. It's bigger than you would think and there is an excellent array of exhibits to view. Lots translated into English too. Entry is a modest £4.50 (April 2015) so it's not bad value for money.

As an American traveling in Europe, I'm always interested in seeing WWII from the European point of view. I'll admit, I didn't know a great deal about WWII specifically in Scandinavia, and very much enjoyed visiting several WWII Museums, including this one. Although you are handed an English guide, there are definitely areas of the museum with little to no... More

This is a great place to learn about history. Really good exhibitions, interesting facts and great old pictures and items presented in very good way. One can find out a lot of new things, but you'll need a bit more time to appriciate it all.

From the outside, this building looks tiny. But inside, it's a really interesting exhibition (with information in both English and Norwegian) that details the invasion of Norway by the Germans, life under Occupation, and the Resistance's subsequent fight to free their homeland. The exhibit is really well done, with lots to read and look at. It's a linear kind of... More

An informative, interesting easy to follow timeline that is a must-see if you are in Oslo. Fully describes Norway's part in WWII and the remarkable resistance movement which continued during the German occupation. Fascinating, humbling and well worth a visit.

I learned a lot from this museum - and could probably learn more from going back as I had a bit of information overload by the end! Pretty well laid out to help you follow the time-line of events - well worth a look!

For history buffs this is fascinating stuff, gives areal insight into life under German occupation and those who collaborated with the Germans and those who bravely fought against them some paying the ultimate price. As an Englishmen it was a great insight into our countries cooperation thought provoking and sad. This is a must to visit whilst at the fort.... More
