We came across this when viewing the Akershus fortress. It is small and compact and has lots of interesting things including newspaper front pages which illustrate well the lead up to the war. There are letters by Terboven and Quisling and several items used by spies for the resistance. There is a chill just to reading the names on the... More

If you are interested in WWII history, this is a great museum to get an appreciation for the Norwegian people and the impact of the Germans on their lives. Germans believed that the invasion was coming on the Norwegian Coast rather than Normandy. The amount of destruction the German's did while they occupied Norway is amazing. It will have a... More

Covers the history of Norway in ww2 well and in an engaging way. Really well set out and there is a lot of information in English too so language barrier isn't an issue.

This museum is small but do allow yourself a few hours to see the displays and digest the information. The statistics are impressive and personal stories touching.

We were taking a trip around Oslo Castle and noticed the Norwegian Resistance Museum. We popped inside and spent a couple of hours catching up on Norway's history during the Second World War. It was really interesting seeing the war from Norway's perspective and impressive to see the bravery of the Norwegian people during a very difficult period in European... More

Stories of the Norwegian resistance were some of the first historical books I read when I was younger and so the opportunity to see a museum dedicated to this important chapter in the WW 2 was quite exciting. The museum is nicely laid out and filled with a range of displays. The lighting however makes some of the information hard... More
