This is a museum built around the actual wooden ship which has gone further north and south than any other ship! You can walk around the outside on three levels and then go inside! There are quite a few interactive areas to alleviate any boredom for youngsters and young at heart. There is also a display of how they built... More

Overall the information presented in the Fram museum is very interesting, detailing the different arctic (and antarctic) expeditions / adventures that have been under taken over the last 200 years or so. The information is well laid out and it is good have the chance to walk around the Fram ship itself - this makes the museum, by giving you... More

I did this as part of a H.M.K. sightseeing tour, and so there was a brief explanation of the Museum, before we were left to wander around on our own. Very interesting, and the ship dominates the museum which was specially built for it, in a similar manner to the way the vikings would have sheltered a boat. I felt... More

The Fram ship was pretty neat to see and walk all over, all the decks to see the inside and how it was for their expeditions. The museum had so much information and history, but it was very confusing where to start, and they jumped all over not only about Fram but others. It was overwhelming. I am sure it... More

I didn't have very high expectations, but it turned out to be a blast! Climbing around a steam/sailship, looking in the cabins, standing on the deck in dim bluish light, it was a cool experience.

The Fram Museum is very impressive, two buildings built around 2 polar exploration ships. The main attraction is the Fram, which was built to withstand ice pressures and was a very successful polar vessel. There was a wealth of information on 3 levels around the ship and then you were able to climb aboard the Fram to explore the ship... More

The Fram itself is housed in the museum and you can go on board and below decks to experience the living area of the explorers. There are 3 floors of information, well presented, a combination of video screens and wall boards, photos and models. We didn't have huge amounts of time so picked and chose what to look at and...

While it was cool to be able to board the actual ship, it wasn't very interesting at all. There was also eerie music playing the entire time making the mood a bit off, and we waited ten minutes to go into the frozen ship wreck area which was a huge let down

Thus is a really fascinating museum. The film, information and artefacts explain the incredible stories of the polar explorers. The Fram itself sits huge and solid until you explore the inside. A brilliant museum.
