Very informative and respectful memorial of the July attacks, which was especially poignant in light of the recent NZ attacks (I’m a kiwi). Free entry and a quick intro given by staff before entering. Would recommend for all.

Deeply impressive museum on the tragic events of July 22, 2011 in Norway. Heartbreaking to see the photos, names and ages of 72 of the 77 that lost their life that day due to the cruelties of one fellow Norwegian man. Unbelievable to see the...More

A small “museum” that has no entrance fee. It is about the 2011 acts of terrorism by a white anti-multiculturalist (right extremist) that took the lives of 77 people and injured many more. I won’t go into detail because you should definitely go see it...More

This Center was the place where a bomber killed many innocent people. It was under construction so we couldn't go in I am sure it will be a place to remind Norwegians of a very sad time in recent history.

It doesn't feel right writing a review about this sort of place. I can only say: you must go when visiting Oslo. It is incredibly moving and sombre. The layout, evidence, the text and the photos are incredibly moving. There is little else to say...More

The 22 July Center exhibition is really memorable in its simple but very impressive documentation of this horrendous event and its aftermath. Deeply touching.
