there is one museum in Lofoten. quite small but interesting. Norways biggest collection of uniforms and smaller items
Lofoten krigsminnemuseum http://www.lofotenkrigmus.no/
It's sited in Svolvær Lofoten. And in Lofoten there is still many bunkers and fortifications left from the germans.
BTW the Coastal steamer has a stop in Svolvær.

And in Narvik is there Norges Røde Kors(Norwegian Red Cross) krigsminnemuseum, http://home.world-online.no/knnygaa/museum/
very intresting place. they have both Norwegian/allied and german items.

And last. in Tromsø there is a museum for Tirpitz.:TROMSØ DEFENCE MUSEUM
Tromsø Defence Museum shows a historic exhibition of the second world war in an ex-German naval battery, and an exhibition about the battle ship "Tirpitz" that was sunk outside the Håkøya island on 12th November 1944.

Solstrandveien (by Solligården)
Phone: 77 62 88 36

They there show a film recorded by RAF when they bombed and sink Tirpitz!! here is a picture of one of the guns in the battery,just outside Tirpitzmuseum

The Ordnance museum at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland, was a neat place to see armor like the JS-2, the Jagdtiger, the Jagdpanther, the Panther and T-34, a StuG, the "Dora" railway gun and many other items, to include many firearms inside the main building.

These were in poor condition when I visited but they are undergoing an extensive rehab currently, long overdue.

Just to add to the post of Dennis R. on the Patton Museum..........Every 4th of July, the museum hosts a battle/demo in the fields next to the museum.........Museum vehicles/guns and privately owned ones are fielded for the event......The btl/demo is pre-ceded by a 50 gun salute to the nation.
The annual event draws a bunch of re-enactment units and local volunteers........One thing to keep in mind, is the time it happens....Usually around 11am to 1pm, but call to be sure of the time...bh
