The Fram is a must see when you are in Oslo, the museum, built around the ship itself is extremely interesting and the ship is stunning! The exhibits are going very deep into the exhibits and we learned so much. You can spend a lot of time there! The Kon Tiki is next door and a combined visit is a... More

Roald Amundsen and his crew took the "Fram" ship to the Antarctic and where the first people to get to the South Pole. They got there before Scott and his expedition. Very interesting and well worth a visit.

Just could not find it interesting.It just did not catch our attention. We were in a hurry on an escorted tour and also wanted something to eat.

Great museum with lots of pictures, text and they have the ship inside of the museum that you can walk around in. It's a pretty unique experience.

This is a great place for anyone with interest in the polar regions. The exhibition is good and overall informative. However it wasn't really easy to find out in which order to walk around the museum. There was absolutely no interaction or service from any staff other than taking your money and handing you a receipt at the entrance. No... More

Close to the Kon-Tiki museum and a must if you like exploration history and ships. A lot of wonderful artifacts, models equipment and of course the Fram ship itself witch is very impressive if you like the sea and ships.

This is a great museum. It covers all the polar expeditions with so much information on their journeys with artifacts, pictures and two of the polar exploration ships. Plan on spending at least 3 hours especially if you enjoy reading all the information and the history of the expeditions and the explorers. Great place to send visitors.

It's really well laid out, it's got some mind boggling information on the AWESOME and slightly mental Norweigan explorers from decades past and it's in a beautiful location. It even has a freezing room to experience the cold of the poles and physically interactive displays on the ground floor where you can pretend you were one of them. Go. Go.... More

The museum is very well organized and convenient to navigate. The presentation of the polar exploration is well done with lots of photographs and artifacts. The devotion to scientific knowledge and the presentation of the instruments used, including navigational aids, is very impressive. And the FRAM - well, it's hard to describe how impressive it is from multiple perspectives -... More
