The National Museum of Justice

The museum is housed in a former prison building from the 1830s with thick walls and grilles in front of the windows. The old cells display objects from Norwegian legal history from the 17th century to the present. Here you can see executioner axes, sticks, fittings from Rinnan's torture cellar, World War I bombs, weapons, investigative equipment, fake money and escape attempts.

We show both permanent and changing exhibitions.

Free entrance.
