Nice building from the exterior. Unfortunately I did not have time to go inside. Norway's roll was different from many other countries during the Holocaust. Will definitely go inside during my next visit.

Beatiful building in a beatiful setting. But you probably need to be a Norwegian to fully appreciate the museum content. A lot of the texts are only in Norwegian but you get a tabtet with English texts if you want.
