I always take visitors to Holmenkollen. Not because it is such a beautiful place in itself, but because of the amazing view. Never been to the museum though, but just walking around is also nice. Surprisingly nice during summer, I would say. Easy to get here with the subway (nr. 1 to the Holmenkollen stop).

Brought some American tourists to see Oslo from above. Good facilities, great view. Well stocked souvenir shop. Didn't try the cafeteria.

I wish I had taken the advise from another trip advisor that suggested going past this stop and walking down! The walk up to the ski jump from the Holmenkollen stop is steep uphill climb. Once at the museum you can pay to do the simulator. It was a lot of fun. You seat down inside this spaceship looking capsule,... More

130 kmph on the ski simulator was crazy - I gave up on myself halfway and realised I'll never survive the real circuit if I ever took up skiing! Lovely place - the walk to the Ski Museum was fantastic and the museum itself very informative. Unfortunately, I did Oslo in October - monsoons and fog ensured I didn't get... More

Holmenkollen Ski Jump Tower is in many ways the symbol of Oslo. No visit to Oslo is complete without visiting Holmenkollen. Both Holmenkollen and Frognesteren Restaurant offers fine Norwegian meals and awesome views of Oslo. If you're renting a car worth driving in Voksenkollen where you'll encounter some other viewpoints not too crowded by tourists. Tryvann Winter Skipark and the... More

We took the train from the city center out to the Museum and Jump Tower. It's included in the Oslo Pass, 20-30 minutes each way, and something to see. A brief walk from the train station and you arrive at the well marked and easy to find museum and jump. There are beautiful views and the jump tower is an... More

On the scheduled Panoramic bus tour and it takes you to this park - one of the interesting part of the tour was seeing the houses change in value the higher you went up the mountain. Didn't have time to go in the Museum but the view from the top is amazing. Pity about the lack of snow... :-)

The view is free, but visitting the ski museum and to take the lift to the top is reasonble priced.Free with Oslo card. Tip take the subway to the end station (Frognerseteren) stop there for a cup of cofee and have a nice walk down (15 min) to the skijump or leave the subway at Holmenkollen and walk up to... More

OK, but a bit boring for the kids. A lot to watch, but less to experience in the museum. The Ski Jump Tower has a beautiful view, and this summer there was this zip-line event. Very expensive, but a lot of fun.

Didn't visit the ski jump tower and should have. Don't take the coffee break at the cafeteria. Visit the cafeteria/restaurant at Frogneseter instead. It's placed a good "stonethrow distance" as we say in Norway
