Narvik was a key location in Norway during World War II, both on land and sea. Today, Narvik War Museum not only tells the story of the Battles of Narvik, but also gathers Northern Norway’s war history under one roof.  

As you walk through the three floors of this interactive and modern museum, learn about the German attack on Narvik and Norway in 1940 and the following five years of war and occupation. The museum sets these events in the context of universal issues related to war, conflict, and human rights. 

The museum’s historic collection includes a wide range of items from World War II. The museum uses design, photos, film, sound, and technology to enhance the experience. We recommend spending at least an hour exploring this educational museum. 

Practical Information:

  • Walking information: The museum is located 15 min. walking distance from the port. 
  • Language: English and Norwegian. Translation available in French, German, Polish, and Sami via smartphone app.
