“We had a great time and learnt loads”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

This (free) museum is situated inside the fortress. Since everything was so expensive in Oslo, we stuck to the free stuff and ended up there. It was great! We learnt a lot about military history, the wars with Sweden and Denmark. Even my sister, who's usually not into history, enjoyed it, it was very well presented.
But we also had such fun in the contemporary "galleries", where a tank or a cabin of a battle ship are exhibited. it was a great way to get closer to the armed forces and understand them.

“Norwegian Armed Forces through time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Gives a good historic view of the Norwegian Armed Forces through time. Nicely made stands and information. Norwegian resistance through 2nd World War is also represented.

“Great exhibits with Tank and Missles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

It is a little known museum - that has outstanding artifacts. I spent over 2 hours there - it is much better than the other museums.

There is a real tank that you can go inside.
Real missles, so you can see how big they really are.
Great models of the army with people, motorcyles, horses thru the years and how battles were fought.

Enjoyed the section on submarines.
Spend most of your time on the second floor. It is a very quiet museum.
It is my second favorite attration after the Tech Museum.
