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.

The museum is very interesting! There are 2 big ships - Fram and Gjoa. You can get in both and also there is a lot of information about the polar expeditions. The short movie they show every 15 mins is a very good start of the visit because it gives you some basic information on what you're about to see in the museum. Don't miss on the Polar experience attraction as well. In the end of your visit I would definitely recommend to try the pancakes in the museum cafe. The girl that makes them is super nice and they are delicious!

Upon entering the place you’ll see a huge ship! It takes your breath away on how big it is close by and upon climbing your way through to the deck of the ship, the walls are full of stories about the ship, the crew and the things they used for and during the voyage.
You can also get on top of the deck and inside the ship.

Very hands on in the sense that you get to wander around the ship. I certainly learned a lot from it. The frozen ship simulator definitely scared me. Its amazing that this ship is on display for what it went through and that it has been fit into a building. Their wifi didn't work which was a bummer.
