Was not really aware of anything that happened in Norway during WW II. This museum did a great job of telling the whole story in a very compact manner. We spent little over an hour in here but felt we did a fairly thorough job of soaking it all up. Lots of English descriptions, so no problem for us.

It was a wonderful morning going through the museum with a school class -- but not to worry they were polite and happy to help translate signs without English subtitles. The overall theme of the resistance is alive and well portrayed in this multi-level museum.

I recommend it for anyone who likes history.

Really liked the timeline display with examples of everything from planes to radios, recorded speeches, little dioramas and so on. Lots of thought has gone into it and I felt a lot better informed, both factually and emotionally, when I left.
Excellent bar just below and outside the wall too!

Located in the Akerhus Fortress near Oslo Harbour is the permanent clearly explained exposition housed about the resistance activities during WWII is. An excellent remembrance to the days, when young courage people offered their lives for other people's freedom. Even 70 years later all young and not so young people should pay a visit and become impressed how from simple inventive solutions combined with courage and personal pushing power great results were obtained. Very impressive certainly worth your visit and spent time.

We are history buffs so my husband and I found this museum to be tremendously moving. The valor of the people who resisted the Nazi occupation and supported Allied war initiatives cannot be underestimated. This museum is detailed and very well laid out. Much of the exhibit has English explanations. At the end of the exhibit there is an uplifting exit that will bring a smile to your face. There is an outdoor garden where people can sit and contemplate and give thanks for the brave men and women who fought for their country.
