This is an interesting Museum if your interest is in polar adventures in the arctic sea. Of particular interest is the short 10 minutes film on the history of the Fram Explorer and the key people involved in the expedition. Also, there is a large vessel in the middle of the museum, which you can board and view the conditions... More

I went here having read great reviews and wa not disappointed. The museum tells a fascinating story about polar exploration. The Fram ship is the centre piece but give the museum two hours. Superb exhibits, early photos and a great story.

The daring Norwegians from the viking era through centuries have always wanted to explore new regions and test their boundaries. Don't miss the opportunity to see this magnificient ship and imagine their adventure in the freezing weather. Of course you have to visit the museum next to this: Kon-Tiki and read Thor Heyerdahl's story of their voyage.

For anyone interested in polar history, this place is a must see. Not only is the Fram located there, but the first ship to find it's way through the Northwest passage, the Gjøa is too! Also check out the "Kon-Tiki" museum across the road, very interesting.

Have been visiting museum many times, and for the foreign travelers this museum should to be one of the 3 top attractions in Oslo. Norwegian has many international world wide famous heroes but actually Roald Amundsen, Fridtjof Nansen and Thor Heyerdahl are the three kings!

I studied the polar expeditions and read about them when I was a schoolboy but could never have imagined what the hardships faced and the courage of these amazing men. The museum brought it all to life for me and it was amazing to walk through the vessels they used to explore the coldest parts of planet. Well recommended.

explore The Nordic tracks into the Arctic and Antarctic. The museum has many of the artifacts used by the explorers, their ships and their scientific discoveries. Well worth the time

For some strange reason the Norwegians decided to plonk a museum to one of their greatest all-round heroes a long way off the beaten path. That said the bus across the Bygdoy peninsula is a quite pleasant journey and it does drop you right outside. Centrepoint of the exhibition is the Fram, a vessel that explored both polar regions and... More

If you are interested in polar exploration, marine history, polar flight, human heroism, this is the place for you. Main building has the Fram surrounded by several floors of exhibits and there is an annex about the North West Passage. If you only visit one museum over this side make it this one and you need plenty of time even... More

So fun to see this ship and be able to walk all inside and out. There are also a series of child-friendly attractions such as a sled-dog pull and an opportunity to take a photo as if a family of polar explorers.
