  • Arquebus is not a museum for the people with bad time, until it is all too much intressangt to see, however, you have a good time, this is the place for you who are interested in history, the last world war, local history, resistance movement, special people, ordinary people, people with courage and love for their country and not at least one of the weapons had the time. Bring the whole family and spend time so that the children also understand that this is something that is best or oldeforeldrene have experienced. Here you can see and get explained how it was in Norway during the war and also maybe get an insight into how the resistance people lived. Think this may also be a museum for school groups since it is large and spacious in all respects and with good parking conditions. Have hosted there several times and going enough to visit it again. Very knowledgeable guides must also be mentioned.

  • Excellent museum. Really good exhibits and helpful, informative staff. Highly recommend a visit.
  • Extra museum! Small but worth to see
  • This museum isnt here. Its in Førresfjord.
  • A lot of history here about World War II and its impact on the area around Haugesund. An important resource now that there will be fewer that can tell our kids (and us adults) about what happened and how it savored.

  • Much more extensive than we thought. Missed Café and maybe more audio/video exhibits.
