The Fram Museum shows the history of the polar explorers. Here you’ll find the world’s most famous polar ship, the Fram, from 1892. The ship is displayed in its original condition with interior and objects perfectly preserved.
The museum tells the story of the Norwegian polar expeditions, who also represent international history in the field of polar exploration: Nansen's journey across the Polar ocean and his attempt to go to the North Pole, Sverdrup's expedition to Greenland, a voyage where more than 200 000 square kilometers of unchartered land was discovered, and Amundsens journey to the South Pole, the discovery of the Northwest Passage and his attempt to reach the North Pole by plane and airship. The exhibitions in the museum have a representative selection of animals from the Polar region, like polar bears and penguins.
