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 is my favourite museum on this peninsula. Worth spending a couple of hours - both for kids and for grown-ups.

Really enjoyable museum for a family visit. Lots of details for the adults but plenty of more engaging activities for the children (ages 11 and 14) too. Taking the boat from near the Radhus was a great way to get there.

I love Antarctic exploration and this is the best museum on the subject I’ve been to. So well presented. Loved it.

We very much enjoyed the Farm Museum visit. It is kind of touchable history, definitely worth visiting and spending some time.

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
