The Theta Museum allows an insight to the history of the opposition in Norway during World War II and displays an interesting side to the history of Bryggen. The Theta group was established in May 1940 and their objective was to establish radio contact between the British government and the opposition in the occupied Norway. The main office was set up in a small room in Enhjørningsgården at Bryggen in Bergen.
In 1981, the Directorate of Cultural Heritage decided that the head office of the Theta group needed to be reconstructed. Hence, the head office was returned to its original state from the time just before it was discovered and destroyed by German occupation authority in 1942. The Theta Museum is located behind Enhjørningsgården at Bryggen.
