At 22. juli-senteret, learn about the aftermath of the terrorist attack from 22 July 2011 in the site where the attack started--the government building complex. The tragic event is presented chronologically through texts, photographs, surveillance footage, filmed interviews with survivals, and other evidence collected during the police investigation. You can still see the damage from the explosion both inside and outside the building. The most poignant part of the exhibit is the room dedicated to 77 people killed in the attack. Founded on the initiative of survivors and relatives of deceased, the center focuses on the solidarity in the days following the attack, and the subsequent trial.

  • Totally engrossing and fine presentation of the event. Could not be more straightforward and respectful of the victims and their families. I am American- the Oklahoma City Memorial and Museum there...

  • Worth a visit. It is important for a civilization to think it over and speak out to make a progress. The site is under renovation so hope to see a better one next time
  • Currently closed as of the first of September, but your heart still can feel it heavy and you sighed for a few times. Prepare yourself. Beautiful neighbourhood, easy to access from the tube.
  • The Center of the 22. of July 2011 attacks should be visited by anyone interested im understanding the actions and motives behind this horrible day. You will see Interviews with Survivors, a Timeline of the events and parts of the verdict spoken in court 2012. It provides a great way to remember those affected by the attacks but also shows how to move on from here.
  • Deeply impressive museum on the tragic events of July 22, 2011 in Norway. Heartbreaking to see the photos, names and ages of 72 of the 77 that lost their life that day due to the cruelties of one fellow Norwegian man. Unbelievable to see the actual security camera footage showing how calmly he parked the bus under the building and walked away just to see everything explode minutes later. To read how the events took place during that day. To hear the stories of people that have been there and survived. To see the actual police badge he forged and which gave him the trust to be taken by boat to Utoya. Unbelievable.
  • It was extremely emotional and raw. Truly let's you feel and understand the devastation.
