A historic landmark in the Norwegian consciousness, Holmenkollen embodies more than a century of skiing tradition. Inside the actual ski jump is the Holmenkollen Ski Museum, the world's oldest ski museum. The museum presents over 4,000 years of skiing history and polar exploration artifacts. The observation deck on top of the jump tower offers panoramic views of Oslo. Open 365 days a year!

Set under the jumping building of Oslo, this museum is worth the visit . You will discover the history of the skis activity, the Norwegian vision of this sport and you will have the access to the top of the jump ramp ... it gives you an idea of the vision of the jumper just before his jump. This show... More

The main draw to this museum for us was the zipline and we were sad to learn after trekking there (approx 45 mins from center of Oslo) that it was closed. Would recommend calling first if you'd like to do the zipline. Museum is just OK - there is some overlap with the Fram Museum. However there is a beautiful... More

The ski jump itself is not that interesting, but the views from there over Oslo are amazing and well worth the visit.

This is really easy to get to - 20 minutes from the National Theatre metro station then about a 10 minute (uphill) walk. The museum of skiing is good - with as much emphasis on polar exploration as the history of skies, plus the skiing ability of the royal family (including jumping). Great views from the viewing platform at the... More

Easy to access by metro. There is a hill to climb, although cans are available. I would suggest going as early as possible because the line to the top gets longer as the day goes on. We didn't see any good options for,drinks or food nearby. So bring what you need. Even if you don't want to experience the zip... More

I visited here as part of a cruise ship excursion. We were only given 20 minutes at this stop, so it definitely doesn't take long to see the ski jump if all you want to do is look. I don't remember seeing a museum, but they did have a simulator you could pay to do and a gift shop. People... More

You can see a good view though you don't go to the top of the tower. However, if you do go up, you can see a totally splendid view! You can go up to the tower through the museum. There is always a long line for the lift, so if you have not much time, rush to the lift which... More

Gave our son a good idea what life in a winter climate is like and made it very appealing. A little trek from the #1 subway but worth the walk.

We took a bus up quite a hill to access, but it is impressive, with a good museum attached and lots of great photo ops.
