From underground printing presses to radio transmitters, from the German attack in 1940 to the liberation in 1945, the museum documents Norway's World War II resistance activities. Photographs documenting the Nazi attack on Norway have been printed on black iron sheets, and a cluster of German rifles is arranged to form the dreaded swastika that Norwegians grew to hate. The war-time traitor and so-called "minister president," Quisling, is deservedly vilified in the exhibits. We are especially moved by the daring underground newspapers, which appeared as early as the summer of 1940 and continued to publish throughout the dark years of the war. The artifacts here can usually be absorbed in about an hour. Outside is a monument dedicated to Norwegian patriots, many of whom were executed by the Nazis at this spot.
