Overview

From 8 May a number of new attractions were available for the visitors at the Fram Museum, the highlight being the continuous 270 degrees surround film shown from the deck of Fram. The Fram Museum is located at Bygdøy, a short distance from the centre of Oslo and is easily reached by bus or, in the summer season, by ferry from the City Hall quayside. We focus on polar history, our centrepiece beeing FRAM, the strongest wooden polar ship ever, dating from 1893. Our closest neighbours are the Kon-Tiki Museum and the Norwegian Maritime Museum. The Viking Ship Museum and the Norwegian Folk Museum are within 15 minutes walk. The Bygdøy peninsula is therefore popularly known as the museum peninsula. Bygdøy is one of Oslo´s main places to go. The main exhibition in the Fram building has explanatory texts in ten languages and describes the three great Fram expeditions. We have exclusive polar souvenirs in our shop and probably the world’s biggest polar book store with 220 different titles.

This very complete museum tells the Nansen and Amundsen stories of exploration in great detail, with s chance to see and walk around on the fabled boats. Allow at least 90 minutes to learn a lot

Toured the Fram Museum as part of the "hop on, hop off" bus tour. Must see. Norway is the home to great explorers.

There is the possibility to listen a movie about expedition, you can choose among various languages. The visit in the boat is quite an experience. Some pics attached

The museum is situated near 2 others. If you have to pay all 3 I wouldn’t but since I had an Oslo pass I didn’t mind. It’s an ok subject but I’m not into polar exploration so not really for me.

Wow. This was unexpected. We got to experience what it was like on a replica of one of the first ships to explore the northwest passage. We learned about other aspects of polar exploration. Fascinating!

I believe the Northern Lights season is over and will only resume in September. You won't be able to see the aurora in Oslo even during the winter months as you will need to go further north like Tromso. For now, it's Spring... More
