Overview

From 8 May a number of new attractions were available for the visitors at the Fram Museum, the highlight being the continuous 270 degrees surround film shown from the deck of Fram. The Fram Museum is located at Bygdøy, a short distance from the centre of Oslo and is easily reached by bus or, in the summer season, by ferry from the City Hall quayside. We focus on polar history, our centrepiece beeing FRAM, the strongest wooden polar ship ever, dating from 1893. Our closest neighbours are the Kon-Tiki Museum and the Norwegian Maritime Museum. The Viking Ship Museum and the Norwegian Folk Museum are within 15 minutes walk. The Bygdøy peninsula is therefore popularly known as the museum peninsula. Bygdøy is one of Oslo´s main places to go. The main exhibition in the Fram building has explanatory texts in ten languages and describes the three great Fram expeditions. We have exclusive polar souvenirs in our shop and probably the world’s biggest polar book store with 220 different titles.

Recently we visited the Fram Polar Ship Museum. This was a great museum and really interactive. I would recommend this museum to anyone and it would be great for kids as you actually get to climb in the ship.

A great museum worth every penny. Start with the 15-minute video in the cinema. It will be much easier to understand the museum and the various explorations that took place in the past. Book two hours in order to properly review the exhibitions. Definitely recommend.

A must for a visit to Oslo along with the Kon-Tiki and Viking Ship museums for those who love history, exploration and water. Extremely well laid out with more information than I could take in in the couple of hours I had for the visit.
