  • We had a semi guided tour and I found it all very interesting. I wouldn't make a special visit for it but good to see if you are in the area. It is a bit of a mission to get there as it is way up....  more »

  • A truly interesting museum at the one of Norway's most important locations during world war 2. The old hydro electric power plant of Rjukan now hosts a museum giving information about the industrial development in the region and about the sabotage operations that were conducted here to stop the production of heavy water back in WW2. A large part of the power plant is preserved in the original state.
  • The museum was fascinating! Knowing the Heroes of Telemark film, it was great to see the location of this incredible feat. The team of Norwegian soldiers were so incredibly brave. The museum is high up with only a gorge bridge crossing, fairly scary to walk across but a bus runs from the car park if required. A nice cafe and shop are in the museum.
  • Interesting museum with interactive screen for the basement where the allied forces came in to bomb the heavy water production. It was good with information in English apart from the section celebrating the fire service which is Norwegian only. I do feel that it was a little overpriced for the entry for what you got inside.
  • What to expect here: At the museum you will get a close encounter with Norwegian industrial - and war history. Highlights: Kids friendly (including kids play room) Heroes of Telemark/The heavy water war The industrial town of Rjukan The movie: "If Hitler had the bomb"
  • Great museum in great surroundings! Important WW2 history for Norway.
