We visited the museum on a rainy day. It was time well spent, rain or shine. The museum is an architectural masterpiece, constructed ( by Bjarke Ingels) around a World War II. The museum exhibit covers the coastal history of Denmark and features a beautiful...More

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

We went through early in week two of operation and it was already busy. The building is sympathetic to the landscape and the social history is told in a way that engages you as you wander through. The AV show is well worth a watch.

My misgivings: there are those who wallow in the minutiae of the Third Reich - now, the Nazis had to be defeated or we wouldn't be able to write/read this, but we should move on a bit... However, this privately-run museum wasn't like that at...More

We tried to visit the museum, and we managed to find it, even if the road were changed and the signes not correct. The museum were closed, even if the page said it would be open, so we did not manage to visit it.
