Description

Fram is the strongest wooden ship ever built and still holds the records for sailing farthest north and farthest south. At the Fram Museum you can come on board the ship and see how the crew and their dogs lived and managed to survive in the coldest and most dangerous places on earth - the Arctic and the Antarctic.

In 2013 the new Gjøa building opened with new exhibitions on the Arctic, and the Northwest Passage - from the first trials four hundred years ago to find a northern route to the East until Roald Amundsen's journey through the passage in 1903-06.

The exhibitions are illustrated with the help of modern design, photographs, film, an interactive map, special lighting effects, an model of the Fram frozen in the ice - and the ship itself. In the polar simulatorlets you experience both the cold and the dangers of polar expeditions over a hundred years ago.

The exhibition is translated into ten languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Norwegian.

Exclusive polar merchandise is available in the museum shop.
