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!

Summers is not the right time to visit this place. I have seen it in March as well during Holmenkollen festival (17 Mar) - if you are there in winter, don't miss it. In Summers its just a landmark.

Get there early as the lines can be long. We waited for 40 minutes to get up to the tower. The view was breathtaking, and the only regret was that I didn't try the zipline. Brought my nephew of 8 and he enjoyed it as well.

We went around 6:30pm and it looked like they had just closed a lip line which I would have love to have done. Other than that there's a museum that was kind of boring, a souvenir shop and a ski jump simulator that cost too much for a 5 minute ride. It was a cool photo opportunity but I wouldn't... More

Nice view over Oslo and an interesting ski museum. If you are adventures you can ride down on a wire from the top to the bottom of the slope.

We only visited the Ski Museum as the simulator was closed by the time we arrived, but it was absolutely worth it. Wonderful insight into the Norwegian culture/history and outstanding view from up there. Perhaps not recommended for people with low mobility, as it is a bit of hike up a hill to get to the museum itself from the... More

There is a lot more to this venue than I expected. Scott's ski from the Antarctic are displayed in the museum. Admission includes a trip to the top of the ski jump, stunning views of Oslo fjord from the observation deck. There is a zip wire if you feel brave enough to give it a go.

The most amazing view of Oslo. Top of the world! Panoramic bird's eye view of Oslo and the surrounding fjords. It is windy and freezing cold but totally worth it. Take a camera with a good zoom. The views are absolutely breathtaking. Thumbs up!

Excellent views of Oslo and fjords from the top, but BE AWARE - this is a VERY physical activity - a long walk from the train to the facility (much of it uphill) followed by A LOT of steep stairs to get to the museum and shop. An elevator takes you from the top of the museum to the top... More
