We got there close to closing time so we had to rush a bit to get a proper tour of the ship. It’s so neat to be able to walk around and see how the sailors lived on the boat. They also had the lights...More

Quite informative and quite visual museum. We spent a lot of time there and now know everything about North and South Poles. Highly recommend with and w/o kids. For history lovers especially!

Right across from the Viking Museum this is totally different. Well laid out and the polar room is not to be missed. Highly recommend

This museum has the best preserved polar expedition vessel in the world. You can actually walk up onto the deck and wind your way through the inside of the ship. Stairs are steep, however, and doorways are very low. It really gives you an idea...More

Yes tickets are available at the museum. I don’t think there were any limitations. Also, as far as tickets go, I would get an Oslo Pass for a couple days and you get into everything you’ll want to see and it also works for... More
