Norway’s Resistance Museum

Located at the Akershus Fortress in Oslo you can find one of the most important museums in the city.

Norway’s Resistance Museum (Norges Hjemmefrontmuseum) focuses on Norwegian resistance during the occupation of Norway by Nazi Germany from 1940 to 1945.

The museum has very rich equipment, photos, and documents from the war years.

Established as a foundation in 1966, the Museum was opened to the public in May 1970 by HRH Crown Prince Harald of Norway in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Norwegian liberation.

Otto Torgersen, a Norwegian architect, worked together with the key personnel from the various branches of the underground forces and created the detailed chronological gallery through the period from the 1930s onwards to liberation in 1945.

The museum is open daily from 10 til 16 hours and the adult ticket will cost you 60 noks. Free entrance with the Oslo pass.
