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. Look up at the museum's ceiling during one of their light shows for projections of the ethereal Northern Lights.

Fram Museum reviews
The museum is located on the Bygdøy peninsula. It tells the story of the polar conquest, and of the Fram vessel, built especially in 1892 for the explorer Fridtjof Nansen, who used it in 1893 to... more »
Well-made museum -- but if this is not your type of thing, you might not want to spend too long here. The whole peninsula is fascinating, however, so it's worth a trip there... just maybe not so much.... more »
Extremely well designed exhibition. You really get a strong impression of the hard conditions the polar explorers had to suffer 4-5 generations ago. A must-see location in Oslo. more »
Very comprehensive museum that brings you through mankind's expedition into the north and south pole. Contains fun elements for kids too. Within walking distance is 2 other museums where you can buy a package ticket for.
This place was awesome. I wish I'd had more time to read every placard, because the history here is fascinating and inspiring. Absolutely check it out and give yourself several hours to drink it in.
Do you like expeditions? How's been done? Their achievements? Then you will lose the notion of time with the stories told, in the photos and records, equipment used in the expeditions, boats and much more. Highly recommended for all the family.
The best museum on ships. Very detailed historical texts and photos. The ship itself is amazing and you can learn a lot by just walk through the tour. Highly recommended.
This place is impressive. You get a whole newfound respect for the endeavour it must have been to plan, prepare and execute a trip to the Arctic. The ship itself is impressive to visit, but it's the information about the trips the Fram made and the displays of things used, by whom and why that makes the ship come alive. The most memorable moments of the visit is the inside of the ship where they have carefully and detailed made sets, that shows life on board the ship, quarters, food hall, toilet, storage, this is what that really makes this visit well worth.
