A historic landmark in the Norwegian consciousness, Holmenkollen embodies more than a century of skiing tradition. Inside the actual ski jump is the Holmenkollen Ski Museum, the world's oldest ski museum. The museum presents over 4,000 years of skiing history and polar exploration artifacts. The observation deck on top of the jump tower offers panoramic views of Oslo. Open 365 days a year!

Brilliant place to visit. Museum was interesting, but the ski jump was fantastic. Views were outstanding. Train ride up was good, there was some way to walk but worth it.

Visited the Holmenkollen Ski Jump during a recent visit to Oslo, worth a visit. Superb views across Oslo and the Oslo fjord if the weather is good.

Impressive contruction, partly Belgian. Take the elevator to the top and enjoy superb views of the Oslo area, the Oslo Fjord and the inland. Interesting museum about the ski history and present snowbording stunts.

Another must visit in Oslo. In summers of course one can only imagine how the skiiers take position and jump down the dizzying height. The museum is said to be the oldest ski museum in the world and is very interesting and informative. It takes quite sometime to reach the top because the funicular and the lifts can only take...

The Holmenkollen Ski Jump is definetly worth to visit, just to experience fantastic view over Oslo and Oslo Fjord! Ski museum is OK, if you are crazy about the skies, but must admitt, never have read so many informations about skies in one place (which is good!)

It was so cool to see what ski jumpers see from up in the tower - I couldn't imagine going down they hill! The views were amazing and I really enjoyed the ski museum. I definitely recommend this.

Free with the Oslo pass! Both entrance to the museum and the public transport (extremely easy and pleasant to use) that you take to get there. After you get off the train it is a bit of a trek up the mountain side to the museum, but there's generally a steady flow of people and signs to guide your way.... More

The day we visited a contest was taking place and lots of athletes with sleds were moving in every direction. They were preparing the ski jump as well, but we had no time to wait. The ski jump structure is impressive; This is one way to understand Norwegians.

If you are ski enthusiast, I will say that this is a absolute must visit - but Holmenkollen really does have something for everyone. The historical aspect of the exhibits is well-done and gives you a great feel for how integral Skiing is for Norway's culture, but the lift to the top of the ski jump along with the viewing... More
