Narvik War Museum
The exciting history from World War II can now be relived in the War Museum in Narvik. In the 1600 square meters spread over three floors, it is not only the battle of Narvik which is in focus, but a comprehensive presentation of the history of warfare in northern Norway.
The exhibitions are based on the German attack on Narvik and Norway in 1940 and the following five years of war and occupation. The museum also includes a section that deals with universal issues related to war, conflict and human rights. A number of genuine historic items from WWII are exhibited. The museum uses design, photos, film, sound and technology to disseminate the warfare history. The texts are printed in Norwegian and English and there is translation available in French, German, Polish and Sami through the use of the smartphone app; EurekApp. The app can be downloaded free of charge from AppStore (iOS) or Google Play (Android). The digital travel guide for kids, Baahdy and Birdy, may guide kids through the museum in a humoristic way.
Adjacent to the War Museum there is a research center and a documentation center, which provides a unique opportunity to convey the history of warfare in Narvik and Northern Norway in a way it deserves.
