The museum owes its name to a Norwegian guerrilla group which had its headquarters in the hills around Matre at the end of the second world war.
At the end of the war, the group numbered 259 soldiers, who tok part in the last conflict with Germans in Europa during WW2.
To establish such a guerrilla base was a dangerous gamble. As the crow flies, it was situated only 50-60 km from Bergen and it was imperative that the Germans remained ignorant of its existence for as long as possible. In the last weeks of the war, however, the base was attacked by superior enemy forces and came under fierce fire. Björn West retreated following orders from London and kept low until peace was declared on May 8th 1945.
The story of Björn West is an interesting, dramatic and exciting piece of Norway’s war history which the museum preserves and conveys. It has a fine collection of authentic weapons and artillery and gives an impression of the conditions under which the soldiers lived: hard toil, snow-storms, rain, cold, friendship and amazing fighting spirit.
