Norway's resistance in WWII is well documented

The museum is in the fort at the marina in Oslo. It's well displayed, and includes good descriptions in English.

A very comprehensive museum. A great opportunity for me to understand the details of Norway's occupation and resistance during WW2. A lot of information to process, very clearly presented.

Growing up outside of Europe I only really learnt about WWII history from documentaries and textbooks so it was great to see physical objects. The dioramas were really great and it was really interesting to see the war from a view that isn't British. Good mix of information in Norwegian and English. Spent around and hour and a half.

This country's resistance does not get covered often so I knew what little of what had happened. There first few days are shown in the recent movie "the king's No", and I was glad to be able to better understand how these events shaped the next few years of the resistance.

The story ebbs and flows like the tide, with successes and failures, most... More

Excellent presentation of the WWll resistance movement in Norway. Many exhibits on display, and much interesting information. This theatre of WWll is not as well known as what are termed the major areas of conflict, so it was interesting from this aspect alone. One question will be answered by my son in law, who is an amateur WWl and WWll... More

We visited over the Easter weekend as it was one of the museums actually open. What a treat - a small museum but so interesting. Lots to read and learn about Norway and WW2. If you are interested in this topic, then this is a must visit.

We had a good visit here even although there is building work outside. Lots of information and exhibits and mostly a translation is available in English. Expect to spend a couple of hours to view it reasonably thoroughly. I especially enjoyed the section about heavy water production in Telemark and the ongoing challenges to destroy it.

My partner is very interested in WWII so he particularly found this very interesting to visit. Small entrance fee. Purchased a DVD and books, reasonable prices.
