About Fram Polar Ship Museum, Oslo
The story of the Norwegian polar ship Fram is famous! It holds the record for being the ship that sailed both furthest north and furthest south. This museum tells its story and the story of the men who led the expeditions - Fridtjof Nansen, Otto Sverdrup and Roald Amundsen. You can step into the original interiors of the ship itself. You’ll also be able to step into a simulator that will give you a brief taste of the conditions that these journeypersons had to endure. Try pulling a 200 kg sled! Check out the dioramas. The presentation is fantastic – the museum insides are done up in pale, polar colors.
Inside the museum, you’ll also find scientific, medical, photo and transportation instruments used at that time. Check out the museum shop for merchandise.

Fram Polar Ship Museum, Oslo Reviews - Write a Review
I really enjoyed my visit to the Fram Museum. The introductory film really gives the broad picture and then the explanation panels in the museum are very clear and well written. The best thing, however, is to go into the two polar exploration ships. I totally recommend it!
Really great museum which is fairly modern. Very nice movie in a cinema to give context and history of all articles found in the museum. Cinema and articles around museum allow you to select from a range of languages. There are two big ships you can walk around the inside of which was really cool. There is also a ticket option where you can pay for entry to the other two museums it is co-located with offering a small discount. Also if you are a European student you can get discount, so be sure to bring your student ID!
Super interesting museum detailing the history of north pole exploration (and the south pole, to a lesser extent). It's a subject I didn't realise I'd find so engaging - the displays, film and restored boats did a great job of chronicling how our knowledge of the arctic region developed with each adventure, and gave an insight into the lives, experiences and personalities of the many characters involved. You can walk around inside the restored Fram, experience the cold as the explorers would've, and warm up with a bowl of soup from the cafe (with free Wifi). Recommended!
What's a better way to learn about Norway's seafaring history than to visit ships from ages ago? The Fram Museum hosts a preserved ship that you can actually explore. Outside the museum is also a lovely view.
One of my favourite museums in Oslo. Very interesting history about Amundsen and his way of leadership compared to Englishman. Most of Norwegian companies still have the same way of leadership.
