Located in my hometown of Kristiansand this place offers exciting learning and history from the WW2.

As a bonus the area is great for those Sunday walking trips in beautiful nature.

This is the biggest Must See of it`s kind in Norway, if you are interested in military defence or old military equipment. They have a variety of WW2 guns and equipment in display, this was originally a German shipturret gun mounted in a large fortress aerea a 20 minute busdrive from Kristiansand.

Thank you for taking time to review Kristiansand Kanonmuseum. We are very proud of the large cannon and, of course, happy when people take interest in it.

We were on a cruise ship and made our way on public transport (really easy) to the Kanonmuseum which is a fantastic little place to visit. You can go round the canon that is still left and get a really good insight into what it was like. You can then wander around the place and see some other disused buildings. Unfortunately, the train wasn't running on the day we went which was disappointing but overall well worth a visit.

Hi!
It is so good to see that you found the visit interesting. I am sorry that the train was not running, the cause was probably needed maintenance.

Have a good day!

Our second visit to the museum, not much has changed but still an interesting tour. Very friendly staff to greet you and helpful too. Our boys loved the fact that they can roam and climb over all the existing structures. Amazing views once you are on top of the Cannon housing. A lovely walk through the woods but most of the buildings left are either ruins or have no access. We think it value for money just for the historical significance.
