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.

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

I am by no means a military geek, but with friends serving with members of the Norwegian military on peace keeping duties in South Sudan I thought I should pop my head in. The displays are well thought out, although you may need to hunt...More

As someone who enjoys military history, I found this free exhibit absolutely fascinating and a bargain given its lack of entry fee! The bottom floor has limited English which is a shame because the actual exhibits like the 1960s UN chopper, the tank, the war...More
