Fram Museum
Oslo, Norway
by Kjell & Lois Evensen

The Fram Museum is located in Oslo Fjord near downtown Oslo.

We arrived from Oslo most appropriately by shuttle boat.

The museum complex houses the ship Fram and provides a great deal

of history about ships, ship building, and exploration in the early 20th century.
The museum commerates and celebrates famous Norwegian shipbuilders and explorers.

Master Ship Designer and Shipbuilder
Builder of Fram

The museum building was built around the ship Fram.

Inside we were able to view the ship from several levels and to go

aboard to explore the lower decks.

Displays around the ship depict the regions where Fram sailed.

The most advanced technology of the day was onboard Fram when she sailed.

On deck we were able to walk around and get the feel of the ship up close.

Below the decks we saw how the explorers lived,

entertained themselves,

the types of supplies they took along,

some of the extra parts,

and even the tents they used when they went ashore.

As we left the museum area we passed old boats on display.
The visit to Fram is highly recommended for anyone visiting Oslo, Norway.
