This museum is off beaten path, in fortress, but worth the trip: absolutely riveting displays and commentary. Would be even better for a Norwegian-speaker but very good as-is. Atmosphere is serious in keeping with subject, and impact stays with you long afterward.

If you are interested in the Second World War resistance then this is a must. Well thought out exhibits with enough English for you to get a very good idea of what happened

Enjoyed this small museum and learned a lot about Norway's troubles during the war. Was unaware of the resistance. Some of the exhibits had no English explanation so made it a little difficult. Overall it was well done.

An excellent museum. This takes you through the War in chronological order and describes the background, much of which I had not appreciated. Britain was vital to the Norwegian resistance and for morale during the war. Nice models to explain the various battles. Well worth...More
