I visited the museum on a Sunday morning in winter, so it was quite empty. Of course I don't know what the museum is like during peak tourist seasons, but I quite enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere and the ability to soak in all the information without being bothered by other visitors.
. . . And there was definitely a lot of information. I enjoy learning about military history, and the museum definitely taught me a great deal about Norway's role during WWII, and the stories of those involved with the resistance. The museum itself is located in Akershus Fortress, so there are beautiful surrounding buildings complimented by a lovely view of the city.
I wouldn't take children here, however. Although the museum is not gruesome, the displays and presentation of the information are not designed for children, and I can imagine children getting quite board quite quickly. One father brought his daughter (8-10 years old) along, and they practically zoomed through the entire museum.
If you're interested in military/civilian history, or you simply want to learn more about Norway's role during the war, definitely visit the museum.
