You can walk into the actual boat which makes this Museum unique. If your a boat / exploration fan definitely worth a visit.

The Fram Polar Ship Museum is opposite the Kon-Tiki Museum, so if you are going to one, it is worth it to do the other. You are able to go on to the ship and see how things used to be. There is plenty of history available to read and models of how things were.

Brilliant. Very interesting. Beautifully laid out. Well worth a visit. Why don't they build one big cafe to benefit all the museums, instead of the small inadequate cafe each museum has.

Visited the Fram Polar Museum on a recent trip to Oslo, very interesting exhibits relating to Polar exploration. Definitely worth a visit if you have some time to kill.

Not a long walk from the Viking ship museum and right next to the Kon Tiki museum. So much to see and read. Being able to walk through the ship was fantastic. Gave you a real appreciation for the amazing expeditions with the conditions they had to cope with. Well worth it.

After a nice Fjord boat ride one comes to docks of museum district. Fram is the first and to me the second best here. Tell's the story of arctic and Anarctic in a way everyone can get something every time.

What do you do with a ship that has penetrated further south and further north, than any other ship in history? Make sure it holds still, and build a museum around it. To be honest, unless you are a fan of polar exploration, this museum is of limited interest, but the ship itself is a great spectacle, and an important... More

A very interesting museum. Here you can go on board the Fram vessel used by Roald Amundsen, the Norwegian South Pole explorer. You get a first impression of how they lived and worked. The museum also give you deatails about the South Pole race between Scott and Amundsen. The museum is a must!

Having watched many brilliant (BBC) documentaries and films on the polar explorers, Scott, Shackleton etc the Fram is interesting enough, due to the fact you can walk about the ship. I have been to this museum countless times, as it is a frequent place to take visiting friends and family. They have tried in recent years to make it more... More

I seriously underestimated the time needed for this fascinating jewel of a museum! Like many tourists, I planned to do at least three of the museums on the Bygdoy Peninsula-but I had no idea that I would spend hours here. I wasn't particularly interested in Norwegian Pole Exploration when I entered, but I was by the time I left. The... More
