A small museum with both English and Norwegian explanations. Chronicles Norwegian resistance during World War 2, focussed on the Bergen area and includes the Shetland Bus. Well worth a visit if you are interested in WW2 history

Walked into this museum when walking back to the ship from City, didn't have time to visit properly but what I did see was very interesting. A pleasant place to explore if I return to Bergen.
