Distressing but interesting .The displays are very good and English explanations. It does justice to the brave men and some women who fought for independence . It was upsetting to see the Germans who should have been held responsible for their savagery released early .

My wife and myself arrived in Oslo this morning aboard the Azamara Journey Cruise Ship and - as this was our first visit - we went on a City Walking Tour this morning. This began with a visit to the nearby Akershus Castle Fortress (see...More
