“nice exhibit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

You actually get to go on the vessel and walk around. everything is explained in a few different languages. do not miss the film. You have to take a boat out to the museums and it only takes about 15-20 minutes but there are several museums on the island. You can catch the boat behind the city hall. make it an all day trip to see all the museums. it is well owrth it.

“Polar exhibition at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013 via mobile

Very well presented exhibition, not just concentrating on Norwegian exploits but included other famous explorers. Two preserved ships and informative film. Don't bother with combined ticket with Maritime exhibition.

“Excelled our expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

We expected to spend at most an hour at the Fram Museum and three hours later we emerged discussing how interesting it had been and how well set up the exhibits were. If you have any interest in polar exploration, we highly recommend the Fram.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

Nice explaination, different languages, nice view from outside on Oslo, 15min by walking from Viking museum, entrance 80. Dont forget to go and watch the video concerning Goa (not clearly indicated). When you arrive on your left downstairs... up to go to the other building. The boat is on your right and the video room on the left (dont forget to use the headphones).

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Certainly a great place to spend some time, even if you are not into polar ships. Very informative, fun and you get to explore the polar ship inside out! Entry included in Oslo pass.
