Welcome to Kristiansand Kanon Museum "Batterie Vara"
Here are the world's second largest cannon ever mounted on land. The reason that these giant cannons came to Møvig is: When the Germans had taken Norway and Denmark in 1940, they had a great need to shut Skagerrak. It was then planned a 38 cm. canon battery comprising 4 guns here on Møvig, and Hanstholm in Denmark. This is the shortest route between Norway and Denmark and is 116 km.
