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.

For a long time, I was mis-guided and mis-informed in the belief that Norwegians during WW2 had much sympathy for Nazi Germany. This was because of the prominence of Nasjonal Samling and a fair number of Norwegians back then serving with the SS. During this tour, I was told through exhibits, artefacts, pictures, videos of the heroic resistance put up... More

How a country tells its own history is such an interesting and rich reflection of the country's unique culture. And the Resistance Museum was a wonderful way to learn not only about the history of Norway's Resistance to Nazi Germany, but also about how the nation itself. I thoroughly enjoyed the visit and think it enriched my experience in Norway.

Normally this museum costs about 50 Krona to visit, we got in free because they were working on some of the displays. It would have been worth the cost however. The museum provides a vivid and detailed account of the World War 2 occupation of Norway, and the continuing resistance against it. Well written in Norwegian and English. The museum... More

This museum is buried in the jumble of the fortress and other attractions. It needs much better, clear signage so it can be found without your having to wander over a large area, especially in poor weather, which Norwegians are sued to but tourists may not be patient enough to endure.
