Anyone who like military history or army stuff in general should come here. Free with Oslo pass. They have a great selection of medieval, renaissance and modern weapons as well as exhibits on recent combat missions such as Afghanistan.

A 2 hour visit where you learn about the army since the viking time until modern days. With a lot of material, from special ops to medic or engineering, a lot of equipment, guns and cars. It was a very interesting visit and for free
