In April 1940, all eyes are on Narvik – why? What happens during the battle of Narvik, and the following Nazi-occupation? How is the picture of “us” and “the others” today? You will find answers to this and much more during your visit to Narvik War Museum.
Narvik War Museum is based on the battle of Narvik in April 1940 and creates an understanding of what happens in the region when the naval battles and the mountain war – 62 dramatic days – unfolds. Through exhibiting artefacts, interactive digital surfaces, texts, and pictures, the museum displays how Nazi-Germany’s attack and occupation portrays and draw lines from the days of peace in 1945 into our own time. The exhibitions contribute to thoughts and reflections concerning “us” and “the others”, the value of a human life and how we must understand war to build peace.
Narvik War Museum also offers tailor-made experiences for kids and youngsters, “The Kids at the War Museum” and “Family walk in underground Nazi-bunkers” (Norwegian speaking guide only).
We welcome guests of all ages to learning and unique experiences!
