In addition, there are three floors of exhibits along the walls which tell about the explorations and show some artifacts from them. There are some "experience" exhibits as well--what the... More

I missed this museum on my last trip to Oslo so I was very pleased to catch up with it this time. This is a wonderful museum and it was so special to be able to walk upon the actual deck of the ship that made these historic voyages. Wonderful to see the living spaces and read the stories of...

Well worth the visit. Not jaw dropping, though well laid out. Interesting. Don't miss the movies. Beautiful images. The ships are great. Extremely well displayed.

We decided to visit this museum because of all the positive reviews. While it wasn't quite as modern as I was expecting, it was a very nice museum. The two ships are the centerpieces with numerous other displays surrounding them. We didn't have much time so we had to skim through a lot of the displays, but we wish we... More

The Fram Museum is an amazing way to learn about polar exploration and the many hardships those men experienced. The museum exhibits items from their daily lives, some of the instruments they used to navigate, conduct experiments and survive in those harsh conditions. The ship is incredible and you can go inside to see what the living conditions were for... More
