Went with grandchildren: Most exhibits were uninteresting to yungsters. The historical picture was gloryfication of Milorg. Milorg passivity and the efforts and sacrifies of other groups was no real topic.

This is one of those museums that make you pause and reflect on the fact that Norway was an occupied country during WWII. Great for tourists interested in a city's history and for school groups.

There is not much information about this place in most of the guidebooks. It is a hidden treasure trove of history, and well worth a visit. I knew very little about the Norwegian experience in WWII. This place was an eye-opener. There are a range of documents and artefacts, including newspaper articles interesting objects used to pass secrets to the allies. Some of the displays were very moving. Most information is translated into English. I would recommend this to families and anyone with an interest in history.

This is a very well arranged museum about Norway's WW II resistance movement. We were just there on a cruise ship stop and made a point of seeing this museum as well as their sea museums.
