The exhibitions at Narvik War Museum
Northern Norway has a powerful war history. The Battle of Narvik started on 9 April 1940, lasted 62 days and cost 8,500 lives. The Battles in Narvik and the surrounding areas involved heavy fighting in an Arctic environment, including one of the largest naval battles of World War II. This is where allied forces from Great Britain, France, Norway and Poland experienced their first victory over Nazi Germany.
The permanent exhibition at Narvik War Museum will take you through these first few months of the Nazi invasion of Norway, and you can follow the situation as it developed in Northern Norway during the subsequent five years. As part of your visit to the museum, you can also explore other temporary exhibitions associated with war in Norway and/or the world.
A visit to Narvik War Museum is a must for all history enthusiasts.
