  • Interesting place which talk about the Norwegian resistance, especially scrolls written in blood. Within the akershush fortress complex, so easy to get there.

  • It may be nice but today it was closed. Nothing on their website or at the door. Wasted 1h between finding the entrance and waiting. Ridiculous
