Jag blev mycket besviken på det nya krigsmuseet! Jag har tidigare varit på det gamla museet på andra sidan vägen och trodde att ni skulle ha fyllt på utställningen med nya föremål. Tvärtom! Vi kände oss lurade att ha betalt 100 NOK för ett besök...More

I am sorry to hear that you did not like the new museum. For your information the museum is almost twice as large as the old one and it contains far more text that the old one (approximately 17.000 word in Norwegian), all exclusively written...More

I'm not a ww2 war freak or anything. But the new war museum in Narvik was to my liking. First they show some history and then an excellent exhibition about why we have wars and can we avoid them? It really got us to thinking.

The museum has only recently been re-situated and is very informative about events in Narvik during the war. It provides a mass of photos, information boards, maps etc and provides a real understanding of the events of the period. For any traveller to the area...More

The displays are interestingly displayed in various ways and the information is thought provoking about war, its causes and effects.

Being on summerholiday and nearly finishing Hans Falladas book " Alone in Berlin" this museum left a deep impression of war and its influence on civil populations across europe. The last floor about now and the future added a nessecary perspective to the theme war.

This is a fine way to understand the role Narvik and northern Norway played in the second world war. Especially interesting is the reconstruction played over a digitally enhanced map of the Narvik area. Recommended.

The curators of the museum are very enthusiastic. They provided us with an interactive booklet which allowed us to navigate through the museum. It has an impressive and well-maintained collection and it also showcases some relics from Hitler's time. We definitely learnt a lot!
