My second time at this excellent museum. I managed to see the other rooms and corridors which I wasn't able to see during my last visit, as time was a factor. I could spend hours here. Fascinating polar exploratory history.

I was truly surprised what I’ve actually seen in the museum, Amazed me a lot, you can literally walk inside the ships, igloo etc. I would recommend to anyone. Very easy access from the City Town Hall, just take bus 30. Really nice experience

Modern museum with interactive activities as well as lots of historical information. Loved crawling in the igloo, pulling a sled and the around sound video as you sit on the Fram on it's journey.
