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.

If history interests you, this is another place to learn of World War II and the country’s fall to the Nazis. Just like any other power hungry fool, a Norwegian “handed” the country to the Nazis giving them permission to capture the Jews, women and...More

A group of us were guided around this interesting and very poignant museum. The occupation of Norway by the Germans during WW2 and the Norwegian resistance groups fighting against that occupation was thought provoking to say the least. One resistance fighter (which I read about...More
