We didn't even know this was there until we found it, in a understated building. Just a wonderful, sobering, educational experience telling the story of the Norwegian resistance, through words pictures and artefacts, you walk along a timeline with just the exhibits and you, and...More

One might be tempted to skip this seemingly smallish building within the Akershus Festning (fortress)...don't.

Little is known of the Norwegian resistance during the war so this is a good place to learn. I just found some of the written explanations difficult to read on the glass.
