Situated at top of Oslo and in the Holmenkollen Ski Jump Tower, the setting is perfect. I myself is a skier and found the museum to be very interessting with many exciting facts and displays. The view from the tower is superb.

Time on the tour here was limited. Only really able to see the gift shop which was extensive and had many good offerings!! Fantastic construction dominates the city skyline on the mountain. Great views on the way up but if time is a problem give it a miss in summertime.

It is a very nice place to go and look at Oslo and Oslo Fjord from the top. It is free to climb up to a certain level, then you need to pay 120 NOK to get on top of it and also you have the chance to jump for som adrenaline for about 80 Eur. You can get there... More

We went there last summer and this is a MUST GO!! Go up to the tower to get the same views the ski jumpers do. You can also spend some extra money to go down with the zipline if you are not afraid of height. Check out the museum and take great pictures of the large ski jump area.. A... More

It is amazing to see an Olympic site so close to the city. Take the lift to the top to get a great view of the city. Not sure if the skiers who jump this are brave or ?...

The ski museum is fantastic even if you aren't a skier. The trip to the top of the jump tower (which is included in the cost of the museum) gives you a new appreciation for the sport of ski jumping.

Its a great experience once you decide to do the zip line. From exiting the metro, walking up toward the jump and through the ski museum in anticipation of what you are about to do. The view from the observation deck is stunning and then one looks down at the landing platform and it is quite intimidating - it was... More

Easy to get to on the Metro from Oslo. Much better than expected. Would love to see it covered in snow (we were bathed in sunshine).

We only visited here because it was covered by the Oslo pass. It is far out of town and not really worth the trip, hike up the hill, and hike up the jump itself. If you're going, go early or late in the day because the viewing deck gets packed and the elevator is slow with long lines. The museum... More

One of the number one attractions in Norway. Walk up the steep hills and take the lift up to the top of the jump tower. The view is breathtaking at any season. Also visit the ski museum located at the bottom.
