In 1818 many rampart were destroyed to create the town of Oslo. The castle became an arsenal and then the National Archive. In 1899 and 1963 it was restored. In the chapel of the castle there are the tombs of King Hakon VII and his wife Maud. During the Nazi occupation the fortress was their headquarters. Today in the fortress there are two musuem: Forsvarsmuseum and Norges hjemmefrontmuseum.
