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.

This museum was a very interesting stop in our travels. It was not first on our list but we were certainly glad we were able to fit it in during our visit to Oslo.

This is a cool place to visit if you are visiting Oslo for the first time. Take the small boat from Akerbrygge. The best way to travel to Bygdøy.

Superb exhibition of polar exploration. So much to see! Videos, ships, models, photos, this museum has it all. You can spend as much (or as little time) as you like here. You can walk around both ships and get a real idea of life onboard....More

The first thing you see is the Fram when you walk in and it's definitely impressive but there's also lot's of information and artifacts and you can go inside to examine the ship in detail. This would be a good stop for families with children...More

This very complete museum tells the Nansen and Amundsen stories of exploration in great detail, with s chance to see and walk around on the fabled boats. Allow at least 90 minutes to learn a lot

I believe the Northern Lights season is over and will only resume in September. You won't be able to see the aurora in Oslo even during the winter months as you will need to go further north like Tromso. For now, it's Spring... More
