Torås Fort! World history in Færder municipality. Vestfold's largest intact war memories from World War II!

It has been military operations in the area from the Viking Age until 1999.

The fort as it appears today was begun by the Norwegian authorities in 1938 and completed by the Germans in November 1941. 

After the war, the fort entered the coastal artillery again. During the Cold War exciting and secret things happened on the fort when a group partly funded by the CIA moved in. The name of this group was "Stay behind" and used Torås as the educational center for secret agents. In 1999, the fort was closed down and the tunnels were sealed by bricks.

In 2008, there was established a interest-group for Toras fort, with the purpose of preserving the fort. In recent years, the group has opened 5 of the 12 tunnels that were bricked again and in one of the tunnels, a military-historical exhibition opened in this tunnel. The museum is open every Sunday in June and July.

In 2018, the group bought the bow of the historic ship "Pol 3" and will establish a national memorial on Torås with the bow as the centerpiece. Artistic responsible for the project is Vebjørn Sand.

During 2019, the group will have access to more buildings in the lower camp, and in the next few years will fill these with historically interested groups, including Historical military vehicles. In this way, the interest group hopes to create a national cultural-historical center at Torås, where the public can experience living history all year round.

Throughout the year there are several events at Torås fort.
