After lunch we move up to Bud Coastal Museum. There is a lot to both look at and be updated on. This is an experience that will last a long time, and is highly recommended!
Bud Coastal Museum consists of two parts. Ergan Coastal Fort, which is a war history museum built around the German coastal fort from World War II, and the Coastal Museum which is a cultural history exhibition on two floors.
Ergan Kystfort is a war history museum from World War II. The facility is a German war fort that has been restored. The fort was built on Ergan in the period 1941-1945 and includes facilities in the mountains with an operating room, command center and relocation room. Here are weapons, equipment and technical installations as well as personal equipment.
The exhibition also touches on the local war events. The Ergan coastal fort was part of the Atlantic embankment, a comprehensive defense system that ran from Murmansk to the Spanish coast. "Festung Bud", as the Germans called it, was 1 of about 1500 defensive positions from Norway's border with the Soviet Union in the north, to the Spanish border with France in the south. A total of 293 coastal forts were built along the Norwegian coast. We offer guided tours of two of the fort bunkers.
