Learn more about the polar explorations undertaken by the Norwegian explorers Fridtjof Nansen, Otto Sverdrup, and Roald Amundsen at Fram Museum. Climb aboard the Fram, the original ship used by Nansen on his voyage, and walk in the cabins of the crew members and the main deck to get a feel for what life as an explorer was like during this period. Also, view the ship used in Amundsen's journey through the Northwest Passage, the Gjoa. You'll have the chance to see the scientific equipment and actual artifacts that were used for the explorers' research.

  • Fabulous work in preserving the Fram. To board and touch the original ship is quite an experience. You get to walk through the various parts of the ship to get a feel of what it must have been like for the crew. The displays, the short movie and artefacts are very informative and detailed. To know about these polar expeditions was highly enriching and eye opening. You can spend a good amount of time here if you so choose.
  • Truly the best museum in Norway. To see The Fram and find out about polar exploration and the amazing, people who carried out these courageous feats was brilliant. Great new effects.
  • That idea to make house above the ship is spectacular, but the story inside is just breathtaking... I enjoyed more without children, few years ago, but slowly they are also discovering the history and having fun there.
  • The Fram museum is interesting. While you're on the same island as the Viking Ship Museum, I would highly recommend you also see the Fram Museum. The Fram is an actual ship that was part of the polar exploration. The museum features a neat 10 minute video (in multiple languages), many actual artifacts, lots of back story, and the actual ship. Depending on how much you like museums, if you read everything it will take a few hours. You can also just skim the highlights like I did over an hour. There are some kid friendly exhibits, but overall its not a children's museum. Inside is also a cafe and a gift store. They do have an elevator, but the way its laid out there are some stairs and a lot of walking.
  • The best museum in Oslo! Really astonishing, it takes you back in time. When you are inside you feel like you are in a voyage in the ice!
