Owner description: 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.

Great place to visit if you like ships or arctic expeditions. The ship itself is impressive and the museum offers a lot to see and do (shooting simulator, sleigh pulling simulator). It is recommended to start the visit with 10 minute movie in the auditorium which gives nice overview on the stuff the museum displays.

It was a great experience, and got to learn a lot about how it used to be back in the time. Given it's the actual ship that explored the Antarctica, it was awesome

Just a stunning and staggering experience, to stand on the deck of the Fram and read so much detailed and interesting information on such a novel journey was incredible. Great interactive activities for kids too. Very much recommended!!

It was neat reading about the mission to the poles and seeing some historical pictures. I really liked that you could go on top and inside the ship.
