This new centre has been set up on the new Oslo waterfront. The quality of the documentary movies - all nice and short - is excellent and the centre itself is a moving reminder of how we can each make a contribution to peace in this world.
Tiny on the outside, this tardis-like museum takes you through the history of Norway's WWII Resistance movement. The layout is very user-friendly, although quite a lot of the English text provided is only a summary of what's available. Highly recommended, even for those who aren't WWII afficionados.
Within the grounds of Akershus Slott (fortress).
A cultural gem, with its amazing collection of paintings by the expressionist artist. Munch painted four versions of the Scream, so even though one is gone, there’s still another one kicking around the place.
