We visited this museum on our last day in Oslo. It's was a national holiday (Monday after Easter Sunday) so we weren't sure if it would be open but happily it was. As it's free to visit and everything in Oslo is rather expensive, I...More

Walked to this museum twice on two separate days to find a sign taped to the gate saying it was closed for military maneuvers. No mention of when it would open or how long it was closed. Never did make it inside.

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.
