The best of the four nautical related museums in the immediate area. The historical information about polar exploration, the ship displays and walkthrough, plus all the hands on stuff make this a great visit for all ages.

Please if you have time drop in and see what these crazy guys did in the early 1900's. An interesting museum with a large boat inside. Spend an hr. there worth it

We visited this museum just after the Viking ship, which is pretty close. It has been a very nice surprise. It provides so many interesting information about the expeditions on the pole. The 2 ships are also impressive to see.

Fabulous museum, with so much detail - two boats, the Gjoa and the Fram, both of which have iconic places in Norwegian (and global) polar exploration. The museum are exceptionally well done, with excellent use of multi-media and detailed graphical displays. I loved it, and...More

This is one of my all time favourite exhibitions... the boat is huge and being able to go inside, really brings it to live. Throw in the light show and it’s wonderful. Totally recommend.

This was a lovely museum and we found it quite inspiring. There was plenty for the children to do on and off the the two ships. They loved the video explaining all about how the poles were explored over time. The Fram pancakes were nice...More
