It just doesn't really tell a story. By museum standards its weak. Especially war museums and resistance museums.. I've seen A LOT in my travels, this one makes the grand final of the worst

This is a small museum and doesn't take long to walk through, but it does a good job of telling the story of the resistance in Norway. Definitely worth a visit.

This museum in a centrally located historic building was very educational. It should not be missed. The other buildings and the view of the waterfront and ocean from Oslo are special too. Allow more than an hour to see all the exhibits.

Take your time walking through this museum because the stories are amazing and tragic. It gives you a sense of what happened if you did an 'underground newspaper' or worked in the resistance in any way. In addition to stories, there are artifacts, recordings, and...More

This is a good museum which didn't take much time to go through (only about an hour), but was very interesting. Most of the exhibits had English translations, but there were a few with only Norwegian. Also some of the electronics didn't work, but overall...More

A few tourist on this place from a brief walk from nearest bus line. Good place to stroll when going around and up the hill, overlooking the city and seascape. Entrance fee to the small museum.
