Holmenkollen Ski Museum, Oslo

4.5
#4 of 687 in Museums in Norway
Discover why skiing is so important to Norway's culture and visit a modern ski jump at Holmenkollen Ski Museum. Easily reached by metro, the ski jump was opened in 2010, and stands 64 m (209 ft) high. Hop on one of the enclosed elevators that bring you up to the all-glass starting box, where you can take in a 360-degree view of Oslo. Adrenaline junkies can ride down on Fly Holmenkollen, the zipline that runs 361 m (1,184 ft) and follows the same route as the ski jumpers. Also try the Kollen Ski Simulator, which uses advanced technology to show you what it feels like to ski down one of the toughest slopes. Stop by the museum on your way out to witness over 4,000 years of ski history and learn about how skis were once a necessity in this region. The price of the museum is included in your ticket up to the jump. Add Holmenkollen Ski Museum to your Oslo travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Oslo trip planner .

  • The lovely journey outweighed the actual visit. Although we did enjoy the visit, there is not a whole lit to see and views of the ski jump are limited unless you walk to the bottom. Lillehammer offers...  more »
  • Recommended to sunset on a clear day. All Oslo is seen. You can also make a zip line. In summer closed at 18. If you want to do the best is check timetables and booking in advance. To get you can get off at the metro line 1 from Holmenkollen and climb uphill, or do so in latest stop and down walking downhill through a pine forest about 2 kms

  • Nice Museum, historic ski collection also by former athletes, visit of the tower was very impressive when you know only the TV perspective. Great views of the city. Exciting all equipment incl. arrival with the tram up to the famous Hill. Recommended in summer. The snake was however quite long on the Zipline, interested for it should be early there.

  • The views from the top of the ski jump are incredible on a clear day. The ski museum has 1200 year old skis and modern equipment plus lots else.
  • The whole area is worth visiting. We wanted go to the view point but there was 1 hour plus queue so we just went for a walk. There are nice places for walks, e.g. the training ski jumps.
  • Smallish museum but the best part is actually outside. The ski jump. The museum has some cool history and great collection of snowboard and skis. There is a ball pit for kids to play in as well as train table.
  • Just the place is awesome, so green and blue sky (in our day in August) We visited the Museum and the Tower View. It's a great spot from Oslo to visit
  • Lot of interesting ski stuff, equipment from Nansen's Fram and other polar expeditions + grear view from top

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.
