  • A truly interesting museum at the one of Norway's most important locations during world war 2. The old hydro electric power plant of Rjukan now hosts a museum giving information about the industrial development in the region and about the sabotage operations that were conducted here to stop the production of heavy water back in WW2. A large part of the power plant is preserved in the original state.
  • The museum was fascinating! Knowing the Heroes of Telemark film, it was great to see the location of this incredible feat. The team of Norwegian soldiers were so incredibly brave. The museum is high up with only a gorge bridge crossing, fairly scary to walk across but a bus runs from the car park if required. A nice cafe and shop are in the museum.
