Norway has a mass of history ,the WW2 part of their history is told at the Resistance Museum , the lower floor was under renovation when we visited and the admission fee was reduced. The Oslo Card includes access to all Museums and is worth getting if you are planning on visiting a few museums and galleries in Oslo.

It's worth a visit if WWII still is one of the thing that you're interested in. Here you can get an impression how it was in Norway during the five years when the germans had occupied the country. Even though it's small it's interesting and worth a visit.

We came across this when viewing the Akershus fortress. It is small and compact and has lots of interesting things including newspaper front pages which illustrate well the lead up to the war. There are letters by Terboven and Quisling and several items used by spies for the resistance. There is a chill just to reading the names on the... More

If you are interested in WWII history, this is a great museum to get an appreciation for the Norwegian people and the impact of the Germans on their lives. Germans believed that the invasion was coming on the Norwegian Coast rather than Normandy. The amount of destruction the German's did while they occupied Norway is amazing. It will have a... More

Covers the history of Norway in ww2 well and in an engaging way. Really well set out and there is a lot of information in English too so language barrier isn't an issue.
