  • Great place to see the Norwegian resistance. From a små miniature models an se old spy object and other elements that made the allies win the war
  • Look at the picture for opening hours, but but... who cut the pictures, stupid Google I'm afraid? OK you can only see the hole picture if you hold your phone horizontal.
  • Extremely interesting exhibition with lots of interesting details but the museum need to be renovated.
  • Great history, very thorough and a lot to read and absorb
  • 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

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.
