Excellent presentation of the WWll resistance movement in Norway. Many exhibits on display, and much interesting information. This theatre of WWll is not as well known as what are termed the major areas of conflict, so it was interesting from this aspect alone. One question will be answered by my son in law, who is an amateur WWl and WWll... More

We visited over the Easter weekend as it was one of the museums actually open. What a treat - a small museum but so interesting. Lots to read and learn about Norway and WW2. If you are interested in this topic, then this is a must visit.

Worth visiting if you are a couple with a few hours to spend. There is a lot of reading so best leave the kids behind

We had a good visit here even although there is building work outside. Lots of information and exhibits and mostly a translation is available in English. Expect to spend a couple of hours to view it reasonably thoroughly. I especially enjoyed the section about heavy water production in Telemark and the ongoing challenges to destroy it.

My partner is very interested in WWII so he particularly found this very interesting to visit. Small entrance fee. Purchased a DVD and books, reasonable prices.

The story they are telling here is SO important, but the displays are very old fashioned. It is so many documents on display, many of them very interesting, but it would take a week to read them all. On the interactive displays many of the buttons did not work so it was not what I had hoped for

The Museum is located near the harbour within the grounds (actually within the walls) of the Akershus fortress which was taken over by invading Nazi armies. It traces the controversial beginnings of the Norway resistance after the capitulation of Norway by the minister Vidkun Quisling, from whom the eponymous term for collaborator or traitor is derived. The display contents are... More

So many museums in Oslo to see but this was probably my favourite of all. Having visited WW2 museums in a number of European cities, I had to visit this one as I knew little about Norway during WW2 While there, the Museum was being refurbished meaning the lower floor was not accessible, but I still enjoyed the visit.

i visited this museum the first time i went to Oslo. It left me a very strong impression. I could never imagine the important role of Norway during war. I do recomend to the visitors who want to add knowledge to their trip.
