A small but great museum. Entertaining for both kids and adults. takes between 1 and 2 hours depending on how much of the details you want to see. In my opinion the best museum in the Bygdoy area. Kids will love going on board and discovering the ship.

Interesting reminder of the hardships faced by the great explorers in the past. We tend to take things for granted these days but the exhibition brings you back to earth with a bump.

I had the pleasure to visit this museum and also to attend a formal dinner aboard the historic Fram ship. (Yes, apparently they do this sometimes:) Three floors of amazing museum exhibition, built round the ship itself. It is impossible to tell all the stories in a short review! Anyone even remotely interested in polar and sea exploration must visit... More

I really liked this museum. The whole story that's being told in the museum is very impressive. And it's an important part in the history of the polar expeditions, which I didn't realize before I visited this museum.

This is well worth a visit and easy to get to. Take the number 30 bus from Oslo National Theatre or the Ferry from City Hall to Bygdøy. The Fram Musem houses the ship which is of an amazingly advanced design and a superb display with a lot to see.

So, we took ferry no.91 from pier 3 at the back of the city hall across to the Bygdoy peninsula (return ticket 50 krona).You get off the ferry at the second stop. There's also a bus but we wanted to go by ferry. Right next to this museum is the maritime museum and Kon-tiki museum. I've never been to a... More

this museum is a must-see for anyone with an interest in polar exploration and man's attempt to explore the inhospitable parts of the Earth. very good diagrams and details of the expeditions(in English) Not much food in the cafe when we were there but excellent sandwich lunch in the Maritime museum opposite, no entry ticket needed to access the cafe.

I included this museum on my tour of the peninsular because it was close to the museums that I was interested in, the Viking and the Norse Folk museum. It was OK but I wouldn't go out of my way just to visit this one museum.

Well laid out museum with plenty to see for a couple of hours. Film show in the room immediately to the left of the entrance is worth going to first before looking at the main attraction -the Fram and the surrounding information displays. Students can ask for a discount. Interesting bus journey to the site (next door to Kon Tiki... More
