Norges Hjemmefrontsmuseum (Norway’s Resistance Museum)
Norway’s Resistance Museum is housed in an old protected building in Akershus Castle Oslo, adjoining the memorial at the spot where Norwegian patriots were executed by the Germans during the second world war.
The museum was established in 1966 as an independent foundation. It is the leading Norwegian institution concerned with the history of the occupation. Through its exhibitions, archives and library, the museum aims to “give a true and living picture of the tragedy and humiliation suffered by its people when a nation is occupied.” If you only have time to visit one museum in Norway – make sure you visit the Norwegian Resistance Museum.
