This is one of the top attractions in Oslo. Recommend the visit, great to see a ski jump up close. Terrifying height, but so worth it.

Such a fun time - we did the zipline, which is the right mixture of terrifying and clearly very safe! The staff were excellent and added to our enjoyment. I loved the ski museum - very interesting polar exploration exhibits and narratives, and the Blakollen play area for kids fascinated every our unimpressable 11yo, and I enjoyed watching the fun the other kids there (from 9months old up) were clearly having! Not a cheap day out, but good return on the investment we felt.

Nice little museum. But the real highlight was going up to the viewing platform. Great views across the city can be seen. Gives you an idea of how high these people who ski jump, jump from!

Very interesting place, with beautiful drive to get to it. Stopped here as part of bus trip. Didn't get enough time to be able to take the elevator to the top, so be sure to do this stop on your own to fully enjoy what it has to offer!

Anyone who uses this is crazy BUT to visit it is eye opening and mesmerising. It is a nice train ride to get there. I recommend the visit.

Lots of fun exhibits to look at especially if you‘re into winter sports. The view from the top of Holmenkollen is beautiful and it is insane how someone is willing to just ski down the very steep decline and jump. The architecture is also very interesting.

Exciting, amazing!!
A bit of an after thought but so pleased we decided to visit this fantastic attraction.
Should be on top of any visit to Oslo.
Not much of a head for heights, but had to ignore that. Took the l8ft to the top for stunning and a little scary view !!

The museum is small and not very spectacular. It has a nice section dedicated to children. What attracted me was the fact that the entrance ticket also offers you the opportunity to climb to the top of the ski jumping tower, from where you can see the whole city and the fjord.

A nice small ski museum with the history of ski.
There is also a very nice play area for kids and the biggest highlight is the view from the top of the ski jump. Definitely a place you must visit if you’re in Oslo.
