  • We looked all over for this museum asked in the nearby shops, and still couldn’t find it. Our conclusion was that it was closed, even though it was supposed to be open.

  • It sounds really interesting so wanted to visit. Found a sign saying it was open, so kept wandering around Bryggen looking for it - it's pretty hard to find which I suppose is realistic considering...

  • Loved the one-on-one discussion with the docent on staff that day. We sat across a coffee table from the docent as she explained the Bergen student resistance, what they did, and how they fared.
  • A small room upstairs that used to function as the headquarters theta-group resistance cell during the second World War. They have tried to recreate the room as much as possible. Many of the decorations and props are donated. Only one item is original. Some of the items were too new and were therefore out of place. The guide telling the story shared a lot of details on how the group started, what they did, what their influence was on events in history, and how they disbanded and ended. I learned a lot today!
  • Admission in a group of 10-12 people. Motivated person telling you about the historic background of the theta group. Bonus: you can be in a typical building in Bryggen. Little drawback: not open too often, though that is compensated by the authentic presentation of the history.
  • Well hidden museum. Very interesting.
  • Cool little hidden museum that holds a lot of history of Bergen and Norway. Very interesting to listen to the story from the guy working at the museum.
