The proud owners of.. Mar 06, 2013
one of the greatest stories ever toled... and then, to just walk on board and live it. located at Bygd√ły right next to the Kon - Tiki museum and just a short ride (bus / ferry) from the centre of Oslo. in the summer season, by ferry from the City Hall quayside. . Bygd√ły is one of Oslo¬īs main places to go.

The main exhibition has explanatory texts in nine languages and describes the three great Fram Expeditions to the North ans South poles. the museum also tells the story of the expeditions made by Gj√ła and Maud, of the airplanes N24 and N25 as well as of the airship Norge.

Temporary exhibitions are made continually concerning different polar issues. Around the ship you will find objects from the different expeditions. holding exclusive polar merchandise and probably the world’s biggest polar book store inside the museum with over 200 different titles.

fun , interesting and recommended

Fram Museum Jun 15, 2011
Fram Museum is located in Bygd√ły (the west part of oslo) and also only 15 minutes by car to reach this place.

The public transportation that goes there is no 30 from Oslo Centrum direction to Bygd√ły.

Fram is the Most Famous ship in both polar History, It is well known because the amazing expeditions by the Fram boat across through the ocean to reach the North and South Poles.

2 times this fram boat reached the North Pole and One time reached the South pole, Come to visit this Fram Museum in oslo when you are in oslo because this museum is so stunning.

When you are here in the museum, You can come aboard and see every details of the cabins inside and you can see so many of historical items inside there still included.

You can feel it and see How the Ship's Crew and their dogs endured years of sailing through treacherous waters, through the storms and freezing cold as well as facing the Ice berg around both poles.

The First Expedition was to the North pole and begun in the year of 1893 and the leader of the team was a Norwegian man and His name is Fridtjof Nansen, and after they succeed arrived in north pole and then Fridtjof had an idea to begin another Expedition which is also the same route to the North pole, But he asked his friend who also joined in the first expedition to do the second expedition and he also a Norwegian Man, The leader of the second expedition was Otto Sverdrup, And he discovered a new area in East of Greenland on the way of his journey to the North pole.

The third expedition with the Fram Ship, was lead by Roald Amundsen and he also explored to the South Pole.

Fram Ship is very enormous and fabulous, It didnt even destroy by the time because it still pretty good condition and shape although this ship has been travelled to 3 different expeditions to Both of poles.

Remarkable and Amazing story of their 3 expeditions, So you better to visit and see this museum with your own eyes and afterwards you will realised how was tough of the Ship Crew sailed across the ocean Just to reach both poles in this planet earth.

Impressive and interesting Mar 23, 2011
One of the more impressive museums I have visited.

The entire museum is build in the shape of a huge pyramid around the original Fram ship, and it combines an on-board exhibition of the ship's journeys along with related exhibitions on the several levels surrounding it.

The museum is dedicated to Norwegian polar exploration and it's interesting exhibition and captivating design would probably make even those who are don't usually enjoy museums, find it interesting.

Another advantage of it is its close proximity to other museums in the Bygd√ły area, which makes it easier to visit a few museums on the same day. It is right beside the Kon-Tiki Museum, and I recommend combining a visit to those two museums.

This is the museum dedicated to the polar ships called Fram. Fram was and is to this day the strongest wooden ship in the world , reinforced with over 1meter of wood and internal stiffeners.

She also have the record of being the furthest north (86N) and the furtest south of any kind of ship. This was the ship of famous names like Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen.

Verdict: This is a nice little museum , lying next to the "Kon-Tiki Museum" and the "Norwegian Maritime museum (Sj√łfartsmuseet)". The main atraction is the actual ship and most of the background information. If you want to read the most important information you will use about 1.5hour in this museum.

Worth a visit if you are in Oslo. Entrance is 50kr ,but its free with Oslo pass. (Just get the oslo pass , its the cheapest way to experience oslo)
