A must see. Evan the owner of the incredible collection is very informative and willing to share his knowledge if you ask. Alta was the largest German naval base outside of Germany during the war with 20,000 troops ashore and over 2,000 on the Tirpitz....More

Nice short museum experience. 6 rooms of second world war stuff. Video presentation of destroying Tirpiz. When you are there, definitely worth visiting. 30 / 60 min stop.

Believe the opening periods on the website and disregard information on Google that might tell you that the museum is 'open today'. Norwegians have education holidays much earlier than in the UK. The museum is closed after 15th August and doesn't open again until next...More
