Walked to this museum twice on two separate days to find a sign taped to the gate saying it was closed for military maneuvers. No mention of when it would open or how long it was closed. Never did make it inside.

Takes about an hour to have a gentle stroll around the Museum. A bit lacking in English translations in places but you get the general idea.

Another very nice museum on the Norwegian armed forces. Located also on the fort and castle grounds, it's a lot of good history and information. Plenty of exhibits and friendly staff.

Stopped by for a short tour after visiting the Resistance Museum. Overall the Armed Forces Museum is interesting, but not as engaging as the Resistance Museum. The exhibits about other countries, in particular the US, were, well, intellectually worthwhile to see how the Norwegians, or...More

When strolling along the Akershus Fortress we came by this Museum and since we had some time left we went in. It's was a surprise to see how well organized it was, the displays were put on a way that made things interesting and entertaining...More

This museum is probably one for military and/or history buffs. I particularly found the Cold War and more modern times exhibitions the best. They detail Norway's contributions. The displays of armour and weaponry are very informative. A disappointing and frustrating aspect of the presentations, however,...More
