A really interesting place to visit........ suggest you make sure that you can spend 45+ mins to fully experience all that is on offer here. A different slant on the wartime history of Europe and it effects on Norway and beyond. Good value too 👍

Very well planned and modern museum. There is a lot of information for those who are interested, yet suitable for everyone. However, recommended from 8 years of age and older. Very pleased with the visit!!

I think we paid 110 N Krone, but that might have been a concession price.

Hi! I know for a fact that they sell a wide variety of books at the museum. They are very helpfull at the museum, so I do not think it would be a problem to do some research if you ask them nicely.
