Oslo is very cold so you will enjoy visiting all the museums. There are a lot and this one is particularly good. You find the real ship of the Polar expedition, lot of information, interactive things to do. Totally recommended.

Favourite museum in Oslo. The exhibits were captivating and informative. Makes you wonder how people in the past were so brave to explore the poles.

"Unique experience for sure" Museum has FRAM ship in the middle where you can walk in and around, wander around the interior of ship, Wonderful preservation of ship antiques and photo galleries. They also shows a small movie of 15 mins that gives interesting facts and feel of life on Fram's voyages. Totally worth the visit and time. :)

Museum has a huge boat in the middle of it that you can walk in and around, lots of interesting facts along the way. Some little games and stuff to play near the gift shop were my favourite bit, a bop it style game and hunting game. Wouldn't spend too long here as the three museums in this area took... More

Wander through the interior of the ship. See the cabins of the crew members and the below decks storage spaces. Wander around the main deck and superstructure areas. Get a feel for what life must have been like on Fram's voyages. Cross over to see Amundsen's Northwest Passage ship, Gjoa. Can't go on board, but still plenty to see. Wonderful... More

Great museum for adults and children. Really cool to be able to go inside the boat. Suggest watching the minute movie (which we left for last) to be able to fully understand the whole museum.

This is quite a place in its modest setting. The ship that went farthest north and farthest sounth in the world, and brough Amundsen towards the South Pole. Worth a visit, I guarantee it - it's not just a ship.

When my husband and I walked in, he was disappointed that the ship was "newer" (not a Viking ship). After exploring the museum and learning about the history of the ship and the voyages it took, we both loved it. Museum is great and moves at a good pace (depending on how many of the tiny trinkets you want to... More

This wasn't really on our radar, we went as is it was open on a Monday (unlike lots of other places) and we're really impressed. There is access to the ship, supported by lots of easy to digest information on the design and the trips is went on and the people who sailed on it. We spent over 2 hours... More

I spent 3 hours immersed in the stories of several Norwegian polar explorers. I enjoyed learning about Amundsen and his exploits. You get to walk inside the Fram which was also interesting. How these explorers did what they did is beyond me.
