Theta Room was so-named by British intelligence during WWII. It is a fascinating and appropriately well-hidden location, where for a few months, Norwegian Nazi Resistors ran a radio operation. A visit here complemented our earlier tour of the Resistance Museum in Oslo. Much effort has...More

Very limited days and hours, but well worth the visit if you can make it fit in your visit. Tiny, tiny, room in Old Bryggen which housed a resistance unit in WWII. The gentleman giving the talk was extremely interesting.

We visited this museum this week. It’s small, 1 room, but such an amazing story. A wonderful woman told us the history of the young men & a woman who worked for the Resistance from this location. Very inspiring.

A bit difficult to find the location, as it is meant to be. It is a tiny single-room museum displaying the history of the Theta, a self-organized Norwegian intelligence unit during WW2 against Nazi Germany. The curator is wise and enthusiastic. Opening hours is only...More

A very meaningful visit taking about half an hour, loaded with stories about resistance heroes in Bergen. Short opening hours and not that easy to find, but definitely worth it.
