This place is excellent. Not only is it a ski museum, but also check out the ski jump. When you get to the top not only is it a great view of Oslo and around, but also what balls the guys and gals must have to jump off this! Get an Oslo Pass and check it out!

I visited the museum and went to the top of the ski jump. If there had been a queue for the lift to the top of the jump, I imagine we would have had to wait a lot longer (so plan for this on a busy day). The view from the top was beautiful and there was plenty of room... More

We visited during the Biathlon World Cup - which by the way was a 5-star experience...!!! But especially the Ski Jump Tower is breathtaking - but make sure there actually are some people jumping when you are visiting. And hope for a clear blue sky - then the views are fantactic.

If you love winter sports and like the excitement of heights, this is the place to go, both during winter and summer. In the winter, the best time to go is when there is a competition going on. Standing next to the jump watching the skiers fly through the air is awesome. The view of the city is also great... More

I would imagine that in the other seasons, the ski jump just looks like a giant grass covered ramp with metal guards. In the winter, it's a nice place to visit. The view of the city is lovely (the ski jump is on the other side of the fjord and so, it's a different view) and when we visited, it... More

In winter you see the attraction as it was meant to be seen. The day we were there it was very snowy and you could imagine how this ski jump would have drawn the crowds. Also an advantage of getting here is the drive through the suburbs of Oslo. It is a very pretty drive from Oslo CBD.

Take the tram from centre of Oslo to the Holmekollen skijump. It offers a fantastic view of Oslo downtown and the Oslo region. In Vintertime, if you are lucky, you may experience skijumpers close up from the tower. There is a nice skimuseum, describing the history of the ski jumping hill, and a display of Jumping Skies through the history.... More

The new Holmenkollen Ski Jump is a great attraction with a great overview of Oslo where it lies on top of Holmenkollen. The view from the top is superb (as long as it's not rainy/foggy) and also the area around is nice, with Holmenkollen Restaurant serving good food (but a bit expensive).
