Complements Oslo’s Resistance Museum
Jul 2019 • Couples
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 gone into creating the atmosphere of the time, though most of the artifacts are not original. The hours are very limited but the guide seems serious and devoted to the heroes who ran the Theta Room. Allow about a half hour for your visit.

The most interesting museum we visited in Bergen, and we saw them ALL

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.

Interesting little room about the resistance
Sep 2018 • Family
We're a family of adults and we got there just before it was closing and it was a fascinating little room, however we weren't given any time to look around in it before we were sat down to listen to the story about it. While our guide was well informed, it was a hot day and he had a strong accent so it was difficult to understand. He talked for about 20-30 minutes straight and it was a struggle to pay attention, even though what he was saying was very interesting. Good to see if you are interested in WWII and have run out of things to do in Bergen.

Learned a lot about the resistance in Bergen. Had read a book on the Shetland bus before we came and knew about the coordination with the UK but it was interesting to see how covert things were to have such an impact in the war.

A little gem
Jul 2018 • Couples
We got lucky in that our spare day in Bergen happened to be a Tuesday which is one of the three days of the week this tiny place is open. The limited opening hours and discreet location are very apt and coming in to sit down and hear the story is like stepping back in time. The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and brought the place to life. It was reconstructed with the help of the original members of the group so it is very real and full of detail. I highly recommend a visit if you are interested in modern European history - it’s a story of hope over adversity.

Hear the best stories about bryggen

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 between 14:00-16:00 every day.

One room full of stories

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.

Documentation of youth resistance to German forces in WW2
Jun 2018 • Couples
This tiny, one room museum on the third floor of the group of Hansiatic League buildings in the center of Bergen is the secret room of the Theta Group of the Resistance Movement during the occupation of Norway from 1940 to 1945. It contains a fascinating display of how a group of high school/college students mounted a successful resistance organization that provided valuable wartime information about German forces and movements before being forced to flee to Sweden.

Not the most talked about resistance group, but one of the more productive ones.

Good story. Nice history m.
