In general there are two ways to get to this museum. Either the hop on hop off bus or (what I recommend) you take the ferry. This will bring you from the city center in about 10 minutes over and give you a nice sightseeing.
Similar to the viking ship museum the house is built around the Fram, the norwegian polar expedition ship. Both the house and the ship are surprisingly small, but do not be deceived, you can easily spend 2-3 hours inside.
There is a lot of information and a lot of artefacts on display but for me the most interesting part still is the ship itself. Imagine being on this little boat for months and enduring the arctic climate and the arctic sea.
I think this is one thing you can get hardly anywhere else, a (even if feeble) glimpse into the kind of men who made those exploration and an idea how to measure their achievments.
A lot to learn and to get humbled.
