Overview
Details

The War Memorial Exhibition at Kvam provides a unique insight into the Second World War and the occupation and defence in Gudbrandsdalen.

On the 9th of April 1940, German troops landed in Norway. We were at war, and the battle to avoid invasion lasted for two months. On the 25th and 26th of April, Kvam in Gudbrandsdalen became the centre of one of the most serious battles in southern Norway. During this bitter fight between German and British troops, some 70 buildings were burned to the ground and among them was the church in Kvam.

These are the historic events on which the Gudbrandsdal War Memorial Exhibition is based. The exhibition opened on the 5th of May 1995, and provides a unique insight into the acts of war, occupation and defence in Gudbrandsdalen. 

This summer the War Museum show an exhibition about the Holocoust in Gudbrandsdalen.
