  • So this is absolutely thrilling experience for anyone who has watched the Heroes of Telemark or read any of the numerous books. Being able to wander around and experience the surroundings, yes, it is great. For me this is what justifies the five star rating, it's a piece of history that cannot be altered and if you know the history it is great. However, if you do not know the history prior to going only expect to find a small area dedicated to the raid. Bizarrely, the area for Norway and Communism exhibition area is far larger.... There is also too much of a political overtone to some of the exhibits, which was disappointing. Overall, if you get the chance visit! But make sure you learn the history first!
  • Nice place to visit. Interesting exhibitions and historical videos. Free bus will bring you to the place from Gaustablikk ski resort. But I would not go to Rjukan only because of this museum :)
  • Amazing place and the heroics of those who took part in the WW2 operation here is astounding.
  • Good place to visit, and by the way give yourself a good hike. It seems to have been a major hydroelectric power plant (perhaps the most important in Europe at the time of World War II. The Nazis dominated it for a while). I have no photos for now.
  • Cool museum! They asked us to join a game and get a "premium" in the end if we get all right answers. 😉 Funny way to get in touch with History! 🤓
